Campbeltown Marina completes major upgrade project
Motorboat & Yachting: Scottish yacht haven Campbeltown Marina has announced that it has complete a major upgrade of its facilities.
Boaters visiting Scotland this summer will be able to take advantage of the upgraded facilities at Campbeltown Marina (pictured above), which has recently completed an improvement project.
The Argyll and Bute marina now offers 54 berths from a new U-shaped pontoon configuration that allows room for boats measuring up to 33-metres.
Extensive dredging has also extended the basin area, which is fully accessible even at low tide. Situated on the sheltered east coast of the Kintyre peninsula, Campebeltown Marina also boasts a brand new shower and toilet block, as well as free Wi-Fi.
Speaking in advance of the grand opening on June 27, marina manager Calum Lawson said: “I’m really looking forward to welcoming visitors to this fantastic new facility.
“Campbeltown is a perfect destination in a prime location for a quick stopover or longer stay and can provide everything a visitor could require,” he added.
Local attractions include six golf courses, the 100-mile Kintyre Way walking route and the Mull of Kintyre itself, as well as horse riding, fishing and diving.
Rates at Campbeltown marina start from £15 per night for boats under 7m, while annual berths cost from £130 per metre.
