Writing this sat on a visitors buoy at Lochgoilhead. Lovely location, plenty of visitors buoys which are in use, seem to be around 10 available. Good 4g signal on 3 and Vodaphone. We even got escorted into Loch long by HMS Vengance. Nice spot and I’m sure we will be back. Off up the Kyles..

What did you pay - £10 per night (website), £10 for the first night and then £5 per night (notice at pontoon) or £15 per night (Welcome Anchorages)? And did you have any luck with the wifi?

Hi I paid £10 per night via PayPal. I went by the label on the pickup buoy as we didn’t go ashore. Matched the website Info. Didn’t try the WiFi to be honest..

Did stop down at Carrick Castle to chat with a pal on the way out. There are 3 blue visitor Buoys there at £10 a night. I love the pictures the owners put on their website of those who don’t pay...
