01496 Area Code - Port Ellen

The 01496 area code is used for Port Ellen (Council of Argyll and Bute) and the areas directly surrounding Port Ellen, which includes 5 distinct locations. Most 01496 numbers are used for landlines. However, they can also be purchased by companies or organizations to be used for services that don’t have any connection to the Port Ellen area.

Previously, the area used 0496 as their area code. This changed in April 1995 during the phONEday event, where it was changed to the 01496 area code to accommodate the growing population and supplement the shrinking supply of phone numbers in Argyll and Bute.
