The modern spelling is Ellenabeich. This is the spelling used by Ordnance Survey. It is also the spelling uses by the local council on the ferry timetables etc. Whether a spelling is 'correct' or not might be debatable. 'Ellanbeich' might have 'correct' in older writing. Both are approximations in English spelling for the Scottish Gaelic 'Eilean na Beithich'. 'Ellenabeich' better reflects the pronunciation which has a small vowel between the 'n' and the 'b'.
