Blocked fuel berth…
Written by Red Fox | 21st Jun 2024
Friendly staff and good facilities. Unfortunately the diesel berth was occupied by large fishing boats which I elected not to go alongside to refuel…
Update July 2023
Written by Contender | 4th Jul 2023
The marina exit was changed a few years back, so the diesel by can in up the ramp, turn right and cross the road. Prices now £4/m. Ferry to Ballycastle, Kintyre Express on the go again. If the marina is full, showers and toilets can be competitive! Water by hoses supplied.

I reviewed these notes in July 2022. Prices about the same. The Marina (Callum) does bike hire. Callum now keeps a couple of Camping Gaz 907s. The Kintyre ferry to Ballycastle not in the water yet.

Update Early Summer 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 18th Jun 2021
I reviewed these notes in June 2021. I still have been unable to locate a supply of Gaz 907 refills, if anyone does find some let us know. Prices remain the same. Note that, at the moment, they intend to keep the showers closed for the rest of 2021
Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 2nd May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. The prices remain as before (listed on their website as 2017 to 2018). I have added a link to the Sailing club's advice on rounding the Mull and a link to the marina website. New charts have been uploaded.
Pricing Information update request
Written by CedricTheGreat | 24th Jan 2018
The pricing on the visitMyHarbour does not seem consistent with that of the Campbeltown Marina.

On this site it states: "As has been said they have an amenities block with full facilities and they are charging (2017) £20 per metre per night for boats up to 10 metres."

This not only seems excessive for an overnight stay but would probably be better replaced with a link to Campbeltown Marina's own website. i.e. https://www.campbeltownmarina.co.uk/prices to avoid future discrepancies.

update Autumn 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 10th Oct 2016
The notes have been updated to include the Kintyre express ferry service to Northern Ireland. We have been informed that Camping Gaz is no longer available at the Fuel Merchants
Passenger ferries
Written by ndt228 | 25th Jun 2016
You incorrectly report that the KintyreExpress ferry has ceased operating. As at June 2016 this is wrong, the service has been expanded, covering at least ballycastle and port Ellen.

Update June 2105
Written by dononshytalk | 17th Jun 2015
The pontoons are now finished here with both power and water. Amenities block is not yet complete but they are open for business. Prices may change under the new ownership. If you are familiar the contact number given in the text is the same as the old one for the "Berthing Company"
Update for Campbeltown April 2015
Written by Rob_Heath | 2nd May 2015
The new marina is in the final stages of construction ( as of 23rd April ), and pontoon berthing is not yet available. There are, however, three visitor moorings just of the end of the main jetty, they are yellow with dark blue pickup buoys. The charges are £10 per night and upto 14m boat length. Charges can be paid by phone to the George Hotel if you don't fancy going ashore.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 18th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. The new pontoons are going in this spring and will be ready for use sometime in June. There will be a further review later in the year
