Yes, there are 4 buoys in a line just out from the post office in the middle of the town.
I don't know who owns them, but I've seen a variety of boats on them through the summer.
I think they are well maintained too.

Cheers

I'm Troon based so almost anytime really but I don't want to use moorings that are private without the owners' consent. Any ideas who might know who I can contact about that?

Whiting Bay, Isle of Arran Added Sept 2008

Just south of Lamlash, 4 moorings operated by local business community. No charge. Shops ashore. Exposed in all but a gentle westerly.

They had gone when we went for a walk on the beach 2 weeks ago but are probably just being serviced & will be back soon - i'll check next time we are over in a fortnight (with the new boat yippee) - plenty public ones round at Lamlash until then

Not me Al

We are based in Lamlash but I have a pal who has a yellow one with a black stripe up the side - normally parked up the drive of his house opposite the shops in Whiting Bay.

Cant think of any other yellow ones

Thats the one. Seen it about a few times. We are over in Whiting Bay quite a lot.
Saw him and the kids having great fun in it last year, he was with another boat, possibly you, Early August hols?

Could have been - we have (or now have for sale) a Valiant 620 with grey/blue tubes and a silly fin - Sandy also has a pal with a white Brig Eagle + silly fin who drives it like he stole it.

Will be over easter hols and all summer- just taken the plunge & bought a Nordstar 31 which will go on a mooring at Lamlash & so in the process of downsizing the inflatable !

Will keep a lookout /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
