“Standing majestically at the northwest edge of Europe, this 150 mile-long island chain of beaches, culture, wildlife and adventure is a haven for outdoor activities, and a great place to unwind”
The West Coast of Scotland abounds in opportunities for the boat bound explorer.
Sea lochs and mountains teem with wildlife, including the biggest and rarest in Europe. The seas around Mull play host to large numbers of whales and dolphins, while overhead eagles, shearwaters, puffins and a host of other birds fill the sky. The area is rich in historical sites from the first settlers through early Christian missionaries to Vikings and on to the present day.
The Islands are home to spectacular and demanding mountains on the Isles of Rum and Skye where the experienced mountaineer can ply their trade. Or just cruise the west and learn how to sail a traditional sailing boat in beautiful surroundings.
Oban Marina is situated on the picturesque Isle of Kerrera on the West Coast of Scotland, at the gateway to the Western Isles and in sight of the town of Oban. It is a well serviced and popular stop off point for cruising sailors and motorboat owners and offers you one of the very few 'all tides' accesses on the West Coast of Scotland.
Mischief will be based at Oban Marina on Kerrera for the 2008 season and guests can either arrive by the regular ferry service which runs from Oban or may be collected directly from Oban quay.
How to get there?
Oban Marina is easily accessible by road, rail and air transport. This is especially important for crew changes or for those wishing to extend their stopovers at the marina in order to explore the West Coast hinterland.
We now have a new service run by Loch Lomond Seaplanes which can deliver you direct to the marina from a variety of locations including Europe's first city centre seaplane service from Glasgow Science Centre on the Clyde.
The abundance of lochs and natural harbours in Scotland make the seaplane the natural choice for travel.
Regular flights aboard a nine seat luxury Cessna seaplane are now available from Glasgow city centre to Oban Bay.
