Where We Sail

 
1. Largs & the Clyde

 

Come to Largs Yacht Haven. The Sailing is some of the best to be had. The Clyde Estuary provides you with some lovely sheltered Sea-Lochs. Lots of Marinas to visit, Harbours and Anchorages to suit all. Visit Rothesay. Sail through the Kyles of Bute to Tarbert, Loch Fyne. Visit Otter Ferry, before heading south to Lochranza and Lamlash on Arran. Sail to  Campbeltown and then back to the Ayrshire Coast visiting Clyde Marina before returning to Largs.

Tarbert Loch Fyne. A favourite harbour.
Pladda Light, marking the treacherous rocks at the southerly end of Arran.
Ailsa Craig "Paddy's milestone"  was a haven for Catholics during the Scottish Reformation in the 16th century. It is now a bird sanctuary. See gannets, guillimots and an increasing number of puffins.

2. The Whisky Trail

 

From Largs or from Oban you can plan your sailing to make some rather fine Distillery visits. In the Clyde there are Distilleries on Arran and at Campbeltown. There are  Distilleries for you to visit in Islay.

Lagavulin, Ardbeg & Laphroag have their own moorings close to Port Ellen.

   On Skye you can visit the Talisker Distillery.

You are spoiled for choice.

All the best you can get.
