Kennacraig (Scottish Gaelic: Ceann na Creige) is a hamlet situated on West Loch Tarbert, Argyll, a few miles south of Tarbert on the Kintyre peninsula.

Caledonian MacBrayne ferries sail from the terminal, on the rocky islet Eilean Ceann na Creige, to Port Ellen or Port Askaig on Islay and to Colonsay.[1]

Western Ferries started a car ferry to Islay from 7 April 1968[2] and CalMac took over in 1978, having previously used West Loch Tarbert.
