Jura, 1.

Feolin ferry Terminal. After parking here for the night to get 1st Ferry off I said in passing conversation to the guy on the boat checking my ticket that I stayed there and he was ok about it (ok not a top manager type, but still gave me some confidence to post it as a new POI). Shingle /grassy area beyond the Toilets. Not in the way of ANY potential waiting ferry Traffic. No NO Parking signs. toilets open daytime.

Islay, 1.

Unsurprisingly Port Askaig Ferry Terminal. Need to pick your spot - some are sloping. Stopped here before Jura to catch 1s Ferry over (above). No NO Parking signs. Nice Pub for evening Meal, yummy. Wi-Fi in ferry terminal. Good connection signal outside even when closed. Toilets and shop. Locals very friendly. Folks in hotel knew I was o/nighting, no objections (official or not !).

Islay, 2.

At Port Ellen I pulled up at LU Port Ellen, more because it was a Car Park easily spotted from the road and a good dog walking beach rather than specifically a POI. Looking right I saw another good beach and decided to check it out.
Drove round and found 2/3 tents pitched and 2 motorhomes on the beachy gravelly sands parking. Surprised it hasn't been listed before. Lovely spot. Didn't stop here myself but it's definitely a goer. Wish I had another night to sleep here but time not on my side.
