We are based at beside the Loch in Campbeltown on Kintyre, Argyll, Scotland and have an active membership owning a total of 23 yachts. Our clubhouse has a bar (where our social events are held), showers and locked compound for storage of tenders, dinghies and canoes. Keelboat races take place on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays but we provide for all watersports having affiliations with the Kintyre Canoe Club, who have 23 active members, and the Sea Cadets. This year we are working with local community and sports organisations to set up training for young people to sail and race on the Loch.

Campbeltown Sailing Club Visitors Moorings

In front of our Clubhouse are 20 large yellow buoys in an area which is occupied by the Club on licence from the Crown Estate. Although 18 of these are for the exclusive use of Club Members there are now two which have been designated as Visitors Moorings. These are both labelled accordingly and each has a strop and a blue pick-up buoy. They are the two mooring buoys closest to the CLBC pontoons.

As regards paying for your night’s stay, the pick up buoys have the following notice attached to them which is self-explanatory:-

VISITOR MOORING (MAX 14m)
PLEASE PAY A DONATION OF £10
PER NIGHT TO CAMPBELTOWN SC
BY CALLING ROYAL HOTEL RECEPTION ON 01586 810030

Visitors will be permitted to berth their dinghies at the pontoons for free. The Pontoon Officer and the Royal Hotel Receptionists will give out the gate access code to those who have paid (or will pay!) the requested donation.
