Update July 2023

Although this is the only "marina" on the Forth, if you can take the ground it's only 4 miles from Aberdour to here and 8 miles from Burnt Island (for fin keelers) So, really, if you want to get spares from their chandleries etc you can nip up there on the flood do your shopping and return on the ebb!! Yould also het there easily from Limekilns.

I reviewed these notes in July 2022. When I first came here in '14 it was in a pretty abysmal state. Since then they have slowly invested more money in the infrastructure and have now got a very well served marina. Certainly there is still some titivating to be done and they still have some things on their wish list but considering where they started from I think they are not doing so badly.
Facilities are poor and getting worse

The pontoons are in a poor state and getting worse.
The toilets are in a portacabin about as far from the pontoons as possible. Walking about 2,000' (1/4 mile) in the wind and rain is unpleasant to say the least.
The marina is trying to make money, but none of that money is spent on boat owners or visitors. They know they are the only marina on the Forth which is why they get away with it. They don't seem to realise that without boats, there will be no marina.
But the chandlers is excellent and Blue-V are very knowledgeable for electronics.

The new Scott’s restaurant is excellent but needs booking ahead at the moment. New toilets and shower block is near the restaurant. New signage and tidying up are having a good impact in 2019.

Be sure to check diesel prices ahead as they are extortionate £1.64 for 60/40 when it was £1.26 in Tesco!

The improvements shoreside continue and the latest addition will be a restaurant above the Chandlery. New prices. New chart showing the Third Crossing.
