Scotland West coast

Over the years we have rented various caravans/lodges with their own mooring for the rib in a 30 mile radius of Oban and wonder if there are any we have missed in that area. These are the ones we know about:

Sunnybrae
Castle Sween
Tayvallich
Creran Moorings
Ardoran Marine

Does anyone know of any more? Ideally the mooring will be in sight of the accommodation and the closer to Oban the better.

http://www.linnhemarina.co.uk/ - the owners also have some cottages. I haven't stayed in their cottages but used to keep a boat in the "boat yard" and you couldn't ask for friendlier service.

or a bit further North - Linhe Lodges - you can see the 'harbour' better in the site for the hotel next door owned by the same people. We stayed in the lodges under previous ownership and they were good - I believe they've been renovated since then. I would discuss your boating requirements with them though as when we were there the harbour wasn't really in active use. There was a RIB being stored there.

Try this one on Seil Island, Nick Hunter the owner has his own pontoon and a mooring that you get to by walking down the field from the farm, 50yds only. The accomodation is fine for 4, maybe pushing it a bit for 6. Good quality. We have stayed there for a weekend.

Its a great base for exploring the surrounding Islands in a RIB

Bit further away from Oban, but never the less a good base is Ardfern, these cottages have the pub about 1 minute away on one side, the village shop and marina 2 minutes away on the other side. Again a great cruising area.

www.lochcraigcotts.co.uk

Craobh Haven is also not a bad base with pub and marina on the doorstep.
