We are a mile and a half from Bridgend Store, Post Office and petrol station, in the centre of the island. This is also about 10 minutes drive from Bowmore, the capital, where there are more shops.
It is about 20-25 minutes’ drive to Port Ellen, roughly 20 minutes to Port Askaig for the Ferries and about 20 minutes to the Airport at Glenegedale.
The bus stops at Bridgend just by Bridgend Stores, a mile and a half walk from Ballitarsin.
Buy a copy of the bi-weekly newspaper - The Ileach - available in most shops on the Island. It has all the events listed and lots more information about places to visit. For more info and digital subscriptions visit: http://www.ileach.co.uk/
