Anyone got any experiences of boat friendly self catering accomodation around the firth of clyde or Oban-ish? I guess at a push we could camp but might still be a bit parky in May for a full week.
Try this place they have plent statics & cottages & you've got puffin divers 2mins walk down the road where you can launch you're boat, they also have moorings for hire as well its a great place to stay Oban Caravan and Camping Park

Can heartily recommend here:

Primrose Cottage - Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Ardfern, Craignish, Argyll

Owner is a boater so understands our needs... Short walk to Ardfern Marina (inc pontoons and decent chandlery) so a good place as a base or for an overnight trip out.

Marina | Ardfern Yacht Centre, by Lochgilphead, Scotland

Stayed here when I did my Advanced Powerboat course and would readily go back - 5 hour drive and a ferry for me to there but worth it.

Have a good time

Steve

Our cottage...


http://www.cottages-and-castles.co.u...ncottage*N407/

Plenty of room to keep the boat, the Summer Isles and some of the best cruising on the West to be found locally.

If its too far North then I can recommend Easdale just South of Oban. I have a feeling accommodation might be an issue in May as there are a few local weddings around then iirc.

Ardmaddy estate also do S/C cottages, some have their own slipway. Lovely cottages with stunning views.

Booked with these in the end. The real advantage is they do a Mon - Fri let which means we can break the journey with the folks on the way up and down. There's a boat yard 3 miles south and a marina 3 miles north both of which have slips.
