Hi, Lamlash pier is OK for tying on to - but try to get here at least 2 hours after low water or bring a bucket and spade to pass the time
When you do make it over let us know - we're either at the landward end of the pier or else out on the water somewhere
Refreshments: Old Pier Cafe, Pier Head Tavern, Made in Arran, Drift Inn, Glenisle Hotel, Lamlash Bay Hotel - all are acceptable and suit a variety of pockets...
...sometimes even mine
There is a fairway through the moorings to the end of the pier, marked by pale green buoys with "fairway marker" painted on them (although you may find that the Holy Isle ferry is parked across it - don't ask
); tie up to the south side if room or across the end if calm - don't leave the boat at the steps on the north side as this guaranteed to upset a local (even if they don't want to use the steps...)
Pick a nice day - the north entrance to Lamlash Bay is fun in anything easterly; the south likewise in a south-easterly, especially on the ebb tide
Holy Isle is well worth a visit - tie up to their jetty at the north of the island but use whichever side is to leeward so the ferry can crash into the other side - there's a tearoom and some nice walks.
Oh - and don't fish in our No-Take Zone C.O.A.S.T - Community of Arran Seabed Trust
If you want to ask anything else, get in touch - we like to see visitors on Arran (especially those in real boats
