Launch sites on Lismore (Argyle)

Hi there,

Newbie on this forum so apologies if this is posted in the wrong area.

Thinking of heading to Lismore for a holiday with the family and wondered if anyone knows if you can use either of the 2 ferry jetties (1 foot and 1 car) to launch a rib?

If not, do you know of any other options on the island?

Many thnaks
Doug

Thanks for your input and advice. Believe Argyle is both an old spelling and the spelling when associated with clothing (as in Argyle pattern on sweaters).
Wasn't aware english prowess was a condition but I'll keep it in mind.

HiDougal


However you spell it, there is always a welcome in Argyll! The ferry slip at Achnacroish (the car ferry) is not too tidal and you could launch there -check with CalMac first- when the ferry is not on the slip. Some fantastic places to go boating around there.

If it was me, I think I'd be tempted to put the boat in on the mainland, and maybe keep it at Port Appin - hop over on the foot ferry when you want to use it

Have a great time anyway, whatever you choose to do

As Seaskills mentions, you could launch and moor by the Old Ferry Slip, Loch Linnhe.

Take a look on Boatlaunch.co.uk Home Page for options.

You'll get friendly service and help just up the loch at linnhe marine with no need to pass any spelling tests! Can't remember what the calmac slip is like but the issue might be finding somewhere to park the car and trailer in peak season that doesn't upset anyone.
