Sailing

Experience the delightful and distinguished culture of Scotland’s West Coast from south to north. The rugged coastline, from Stranraer up to the Isles, provides both challenging and sheltered waters, plenty of wildlife and great shore excursions. Enjoy the many famous distilleries of Islay and Jura, or visit the pastoral island of Gigha which has a reputation for fine sandy beaches and beautiful gardens. Sail Scotland’s prettiest shortcut; the Crinan Canal which is known to sailors the world over for its spectacular surrounding countryside and friendly lock keepers. Campbeltown is an excellent stopping point for those heading around Mull, crossing toIrelandor cruising theClyde. It offers a wide range of facilities for visiting yachts with easy access to the town centre. The Firth of Clyde offers a large area of sheltered deep water; it has several large marinas with capacity for thousands of boats, a host of marine services on offer, a wonderfully scenic cruising area and many destinations, ranging from sheltered bays to busy fishing harbours, all a pleasure to visit. Cruising opportunities within the Firth are boundless and planning a two week cruise with a different anchorage each night is no problem. Further north the islands of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna otherwise known as the Small (or ‘Cocktail’) Isles are well worth a visit and are easily accessed from Mallaig’s new 48 berth marina. The remote coastal communities on the Sound of Mull and on the Morvern Peninsula in Lochaber such as the village of Loch Aline which offers visitor berths and moorings are also well worth a visit. Lochaline is set in stunning scenery with some lovely coastal walks close to the village. A short sail to the head of Loch Aline takes you to the splendid gardens of Ardtornish Estate and on to the ruined castle. Arisaig, offering 60 moorings, is complementary to both Lochaline and Mallaig.
