I reviewed these notes in July 2022. As noted below (and now in the main text) they have opened a new amenities building which from the photos I have seen is very. impressive>
Update early 2022

A brand new shower/toilet/laundry block has just been opened for all users (entry by key pad combination) - first class facility. The chandlery is excellent and for food, there is an excellent village shop 300m from the marina and a lovely cafe/bistro (Lucy's) about quarter of a mile along the road for coffees, lunch and afternoon teas.

Be aware that AIS and VHF transmissions can be masked within the loch so it is best to be persistent when calling.
Update Early Summer 2021

I reviewed these notes in June 2021 and the only change necessary was to the charges.
Update 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 25th Apr 2019
These notes were reviewed in April 2019. Apart from improved Wifi there are no changes here unless you count the inevitable price rises. They are now charging a hefty £3.85 per day for electricity. The chart has been replaced

Excellent facilities, showers, comprehensive chandlery and workshop.
Staff most helpful, short walk to shop and pub.
Very good shelter, but can be busy in the season.
