Make sure to take the time to enjoy spotting the many species of wildlife that frequent these waters, such as seals, porpoises, dolphins, whales, and basking sharks — to name but a few. Bird watchers will also have a field day with a staggering range and quantity of seabirds, from the comical little guillemots to the spectacular diving gannets.
Whether you're looking for the solitude of quiet anchorages or the bustle of busy fishing villages, the West Coast of Scotland offers a huge variety of interesting passages and destinations.
Although we concentrate on bareboat charters we can offer skippered charters and Scottish corporate sailing events by arrangement.
All of our yachts comply strictly with the DTI regulations on safety and the inventories are designed to be as comprehensive as possible to ensure that you have everything you need on board. All yachts also come complete with tender and outboard motor.
All of our yachts are based in Largs Yacht Haven. The weak tidal currents of the Firth of Clyde, combined with detailed buoyage system and sheltered water, provide safe conditions for navigation. There are numerous secluded anchorages to be experienced and an abundance wildlife.
The attractive harbours of Millport, Rothesay and Tarbert are a leisurely day sail from the marina, as are the great marina and spa facilities at Portavadie.
Rounding the Mull of Kintyre or transiting the Crinan canal will lead to more challenging sailing and longer passages. For more information and guides about sailing from Largs and the amazing nearby locations, you may like to keep up with our sailing blog.
Combine your sailing holiday with other interests; golf, cycling, mountain biking, hill walking, climbing and diving are just some of the activities available to those who like to keep fit.
If relaxing is a little closer to your style, there are plenty of opportunities to visit whisky distilleries and places of historic interest or to catch some of the local music festivals and Highland games which take place in the summer months.
We are happy to offer advice and help you keep everyone in the crew entertained. Just get in touch and ask us for more details.
