I reviewed these notes in July 2022. Thanks Stuart (below) for the info on pickup strops in Brodick. No other changes
Brodick visitor buoys do have strops!
Written by Stuart M | 20th Jun 2022
The visitor blue buoys at Brodick now have strops and pick up buoys. It would be extremely difficult to use the top ring for mooring since the strops are attached there.
Update Early Summer 2021

I reviewed these notes in June 2021. Minor details tend to change regularly on Arran as different people take on roles within the community and others retire but generally everyone knows who is "doing it now" and I have endeavoured to find out for you. Local websites can be helpful but are generally the last to be updated!!

Mobile coverage
Written by Smithy8888 | 20th Nov 2019
Mobile coverage(Vodafone) was very poor all over the Lamlash Bay. Anchorage off Holy Isle is sheltered but quite kelpy.

Further Update Spring 2019

The buoys have been laid again for this season and we have been told of a couple of buoys down the coast at Whiting Bay where you can also obtain fuel (both diesel and petrol)
Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 30th Apr 2019
These notes were reviewed in April 2019. The tel no for the Lamlash moorings has changed so if you are a regular you'd better check your "contacts" in your mobile. We are trying to find out when the buoys in Brodick were last lifted/inspected. New charts have been uploaded.

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

Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 1st Apr 2015
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.
