About the Firth of Clyde

The Firth of Clyde is one of Scotland’s largest inlets, its outer reaches 15 miles wide between Arran and Ayr. This majestic sound becomes increasingly sheltered further in, flanked by dramatic hills and lush green islands. Here are all the ingredients for spectacular cruising,nicely cocooned from the open sea.

Welcoming Largs Yacht Haven lies well into the Firth, looking out towards Great Cumbrae island and the soft east coast of Bute. On Friday evenings there’s always an expectant buzz around its bistros and bars, and dinner at the marina’s

The Caledonian Canal

Cutting across the Highlands from Inverness in the north east to Fort William on the west coast, this lively canal links four lochs - Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, the famous Loch Ness and Loch Dochfour.
