Plain sailing with the marina team

Portavadie is many things, but its beating heart is the marina. Looking after this vital organ and dealing with all things boat-related is the job of the marina team. They’re all experienced sailors and know the waters around this part of the world well.

So what are the team’s top tips for sailing in the area? They say you could happily spend several days exploring the Kyles of Bute, with all its moorings, welcoming pubs and lovely spots to anchor. The Colintraive Hotel and the Kames Hotel both have moorings and are great favourites with sailors. If you just have a day, they recommend sailing down the loch to Lochranza on Arran. If the wind’s coming from the other direction, head up the loch to Otter Ferry, stopping off at the Oystercatcher with its mooring buoys and handy landing stage. To experience the landscape in an altogether different way, the team suggests a night sail. There’s nothing more beautiful than a moonlit sail up the Kyles with the stars glittering in the sky above. You’ll see sunrises and sunsets that will take your breath away, and, on a dark night, electric-blue phosphorescence lighting up the crests of the waves as they hit the boat.
