if you need any info about this area I'll b glad to help I've used most and scoped the rest with different vessels and vehicles if u let me know your rib/ boat size and vehicle I'll tell you your options

Thanks for the offer! It's probably going to be next year rather than this year (as the missus is set on going somewhere hot and sunny in one of them there flying machines this year) but I'll hopefully be up there again.

I used to live and dive the area a lot.
Tarbert is the best slip, use between ferries and park the the car park beside it, no problems.

Further up is Minard which a a beach launch but no problems.

Slightly further up is a fish farm that used to allow launching at weekends without much problem if you asked.

Even further up is the caravan park but this costs (all others are free)

On the other side is Strachur which is a beach launch again but easy enough.

You should be able to use one of these, don't know ardrishaig but our club always went for free before paying for a launch, plus there is half of bugger all around Lochgilphead, its a dump!
