Enjoy a trip around Campbeltown Loch for up to 3 adults with a friendly and knowledgeable instructor as your guide. Travel quietly without any engine, harnessing the wind, just like generations of seafarers have done before. This experience is a great way to spend an afternoon and see Campbeltown and Scotland from a completely different perspective. It's also perfect if you'd like to experience what sailing is like without committing to taking a full course.

The route you take will depend on the conditions on the day, there's with lots to see around the loch and places you could go, making each trip unique. Keep a lookout for a visit from some of our local wildlife, including seabirds, seals, and if you're very lucky maybe even a porpoise. Your guide will be a sailing instructor, meaning that if you'd like to try steering or have any questions about sailing they'll be more than happy to help.
