Rib Options Arran...?

Hi All,

Planning a non boating related trip to Arran in June. Thinking about extending the w/e and having a wee play if Rib options are good? Launch sites, harbours, marinas etc. to accommodate 6.3 Rib. Anyone out there got any experience / comment on the delights of Arran in relation to this type of boating activity?

Cheers guys ;-).

Cameron

Good launching facilities at Lamlash and I'd imagine you could arrange trailer storage there ok but there's no marinas or good harbours (a couple of derelict ones) on the island where you could leave the boat afloat. Lamlash and Lochranza do have swinging moorings (mostly private) and there's visitor moorings off Brodick and Lamlash but they're all a bit exposed and you might get a bit of a fright with the cost of taking the rib/trailer on the ferry.
If you can get a hold of someone at the Lamlash boat club they'll keep you right.

Pontoon at Lochranza but day use only, no overnight allowed (according to notice). Handy for a wee visit to the distillery or food at the hotel.
