Port Details

We normally sail out of James Watt Dock in Greenock at the begginning and end of the season. The middle of the season (roughly June – August) we will often visit other ports.

See below details on each of these locations and how to get there for your voyage. Please see your joining instructions email for your start time and date.

Greenock

James Watt Dock Marina

The Sugar Warehouse
East Hamilton Street
Greenock
PA15 2UA

 

Getting There: By Car

James Watt Dock Marina is located off the main M8/A8 road to Greenock (PA15 2UT). Once through Port Glasgow, continue on the A8 following signs for Greenock. At the traffic lights between the car wash and Ford garages continue straight on then take a right hand turn at the next set of traffic lights. On entering James Watt Dock take the first left which brings you into the dock. The boat should be visible, 100 foot masts with orange tops.
From Glasgow: around 35 minutes (23 miles)

Getting There: By Train

Cartsdyke Station is approximately 10 minutes walk from the dock and provides a frequent service between Glasgow Central and Gourock. There are two trains per hour from Cartsdyke to Glasgow at 17 and 47 minutes past the hour and from Glasgow at 05 and 55 minutes past the hour. Times may vary at peak hours and on weekends/bank holidays. We would recommend that you check train times before travelling at http://www.nationalrail.co.uk.
From Glasgow Central: around 40 minutes
From Cartsdyke Station to Dock: around 10 minutes (400m)

Oban

Oban North Pier Ferry Terminal

Oban
PA34 5QD

 

The vessels are no longer moored in Oban marina on Kerrera.

So, please don’t get on the little ferry to Kerrera.

Our boats will be tied up along the pontoon accessible from the North Side of the North Pier and should be visible from the road.

Getting There: By Car

We do not recommend driving to Oban as parking can be impossible. The majority of Oban (especially by the water) is now a daily pay to park. Fees will also arrive daily if parking is not paid.

Getting There: By Train

Oban Train Station is about a 5 minute walk from the pier. On exiting, keep the water on your left and walk towards the North Pier (red roofed buidings). There is a gate accessible from the car park which will take you down to the pontoons.
