Location and Directions
Cruising grounds, and Kip Marina
Mainsail Yachting is located at the Kip Marina which has long been acknowledged as Scotland's Premier Marina. It has a spacious berthing layout, rural location and excellent access to cruising grounds. Within the local village of Inverkip and in the Marina itself there is a choice of shops, bars and restaurants. The area offers some of the best and most breathtaking sailing waters in Europe. Mainsail Yachting is also near the gateway to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, the first National Park in Scotland.

By road: From Glasgow or Glasgow Airport, drive west on the M8 and follow the signs for Greenock. Continue on the A78, following signs to Largs/Inverkip.

Mainsail Yachting also operates out of Holy Loch Marina in Dunoon, Argyll. Dunoon is reached from Glasgow by driving west on the M8 and following the signs for Greenock and Gourock, or you can take the train or bus from Glasgow to Gourock, as above.

Upon reaching Gourock, you can take either the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry which operates from the Gourock Ferry Terminal (next to the train station) to Dunoon Pier, or you can take Western Ferries from Gourock's McInroy's Point to Hunter's Quay. Neither ferry requires pre-booking. Alternatively, drive the longer, scenic route from Glasgow, crossing the Erskine Bridge and then heading for the A82 which passes Loch Lomondside, then the A83 past the Rest and Be Thankful, followed by the A815 along the shores of Loch Eck, which leads to Dunoon.
