Notice the pier and the walkway going down the side of it?

Just to the left of it you can see a very faint track going to the shore, that's it.

The field in the bottom of the picture is the campsite.

Thanks for that Alan, i take it it's a wader job then? does the car need to get dunked to get the boat off? iv'e only ever launched this rib off a slip so far, but iv'e got chest waders anyway.
Iv'e got my trailer in bit's at the moment, new suspension units, brakes and rust treatment!!!
Hi Mick, if it's as bad as that i might end up sleeping in the car, !!!!.

I happened to have my drysuit on when we launched and recovered last year so I didn't take much notice. There will be plenty of folk about to lent a hand if you need it. I used the missus rav4 and I remember I didn't go as far as the alloys. Itl be tide dependant though.

Launching at Easdale, Camping at easdale

For those unfamiliar with easdale and the beach
Don't forget Seafari has a trailer extension bar that fits between the car and the trailer to allow you to get deeper into the water to launch.

For those requiring a full slip
Launch at Cuan just a mile by sea away. Whilst this is the ferry slip to the Isle of Luing, a number of the ferrymen come along to ERR and kindly agre to help anyone launch there, park up the trailers but you have to have 2 persons, one to drive the boat the Easdale, the other to bring the car back

Camping at Easdale is at Highland Arts with toilet facilities at the top of the Ellenabeich Pier. There is a good atmosphere within the 'camping brigade' at ERR. Plenty of space just contact Highland Arts beforehand.
