These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2017. I've added two mooring locations on the West side of the island.

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. I have revamped this page to include Lochranza in the main body. Further updates on the depths in Lamlash will be forthcoming when I have received information from them
Lamlash Bay: Sandbank near moorings.
Written by Lee Bow | 14th Jul 2014
the charts show a shallow area to the NE of the boat moorings stretching from the Grey Spire to the Hospital, this changes each year and can be very shallow further out than charted. It is visible at low tide out as far as the middle of the moorings this year, 2014.
Anything with East in the wind can be lumpy in at the moorings, a true NE or SE is very lumpy. The inside of Holy Isle makes for good shelter from all these winds.
Happy sailing.

September visit to Lamlash
Written by Miura | 22nd Apr 2011
We visited Lamlash in September 2010 having departed from Rathlin Island, Co Antrim. The sea off the South entrance was teeming with mackerel which the younger crew delighted in catching. We tied up to a mooring for about £12/night. They are a long way out and the dinghy trip in was wet. We had a SE wind (quite unusual) and the swell was running right into the mooring area so it was rolly. Wiser skippers anchored tight into Holy Island and were much better sheltered - however we wanted to access the town.
The meal in the Glenisle Hotel was adequate but expensive. They were busy and made it clear that they wanted us in & out quickly. The evening meal is the highlight of our day so feeling rushed is not totally appreciated.
Arran is a beautiful island and visits to Brodick Castle and Holy Island with the Buddhist temple were enjoyed by all. A tame, one-eyed goose was a big hit with the kids.
I would definitely visit again but would be more choosy about choice of anchorage & restaurant
