Local Sights & Activities for Isle of Seil
Two miles south, at Balvicar, the road turns right and climbs up and over to the main village of Ellanbeich, an attractive wee place with rows of white cottages around the harbour. This was once a tiny island itself until the intensive slate quarrying succeeded in silting up the narrow sea channel. The village is also, rather confusingly, known by the same name as the nearby island of Easdale, so renowned was the latter for its slate deposits. Another road runs south from Balvicar to North Cuan, from where the car ferry sails across the treacherous Cuan Sound to Luing.
