Going was about 2 hours and back was about 2.5 or so, could do it in much less on a good day.

What made you pick Stranraer marina as your base. Wig Bay or Port Logan would have meant a little further by road but less by sea.

Trailer and car security is excellent at Stranraer and as we both have spank new trailers we wanted to come back to them.

Also, Stranraer is very sheltered for launch and recovery. If we were doing it again would do the same thing.

yep point taken. But if you are going out and back the same day then give Wig Bay a call as it would save you the drag up and down the loch

We never went and came on same day on this one so Stranraer worked well on this occasion.

The Loch was best part of the sail!
