Sitting on the shore of the beautiful Lamlash Bay, Lamlash is the largest village on the Isle of Arran, which is naturally protected to the east by Holy Island, rising 1,000ft (314m) out of the sea. A picturesque anchorage with good pubs, shoreline walks and much history and character.


Lochranza is located on Arran’s north west corner the village is set on the shore of Loch Ranza. The bay, with good moorings, is dominated by its castle built into the bay on a shingle spit. Lochranza is a favourite spot for red deer, grey seals, otters and sightings of golden eagles. Or for a tasting take a trip to the Isle of Arran distillery and it`s single malts.


Isle of Bute


One of the gems of the Clyde Estuary, the Isle of Bute has an extraordinary and varied landscape, secluded quiet sandy bays with colonies of seals to craggy uplands, Bute is a haven for walking, cycling, fishing and wildlife with the most beautiful views and seascapes. When visiting Bute don`t miss out on a visit to Mount Stuart House, Britain’s most astounding and eccentric Victorian Gothic mansion, a feat of Victorian engineering. Or cruise around the island through the world renowned Kyles of Bute, the narrow sea passage between Bute and the Cowal peninsula. Wonderful scenery, good shelter and pretty villages with pubs and hotels with moorings. Passaging through the Kyles is a great way to or from Loch Fyne.


Loch Fyne


The deep waters of Loch Fyne are one of Scotland’s longest sea lochs extending 40 miles (65km) into the Scottish hills. Renowned for its seafood the loch is alive with abundant sea birds and wildlife. Pretty anchorages and the hills climbing out of the deep waters of the loch are the character for these beautiful cruising grounds. Stopover in the natural harbour of the fishing and yachting village of Tarbert, surrounded by heather covered hills. Tarbert is picturesque, historic and lively and a good centre for the cruising grounds of Loch Fyne or down into Kilbrannan Sound along Arrans western shores.


Tarbert


An idyllic Scottish fishing and yachting village surrounding Tarbert`s natural harbour and nestled into the hills of Kintyre. Famous for Loch Fyne’s seafood with a range of good pubs and restaurants. A yachting haven and a vibrant fishing community overlooked by its castle. Tarbert is good jumping off spot for the scenic cruise through the Crinan canal, the short cut to the west coast.


Wildlife


The Firth of Clyde, the shores and waters of Arran and the Clyde’s sea lochs are full of life with regular sightings of dolphins, seals and in the summertime are feeding grounds for basking sharks. Overhead watch the diving display of gannets, one of the UKs largest and most beautiful seabirds. Clyde Marina is proud to be a member of Wild Scotland.
