Since joining the club recently we have experienced really friendly and professional staff that are quick to respond and help with queries. The marina itself is very nice giving easy access to our boat and offering great shower/toilet facilities as well as a club house. Sadly the chandlers is no longer on site which is a real shame but understandable in the financial climate

Great place for moorings, boat sales, marine Chandler, and boat services.

Angus McLean


This place is a lovely place to store your boat. It has all the facilities you could need. Plenty of shower rooms and toilets, however they can get a bit busy. It has a yacht club where you can go for a drink or grab a bite to eat. And has lovely waterside views wherever you look.
