I can appreciate that keeping up-to-date with Covid-19 guidelines is something we may be getting tired of, so I will keep this as concise as possible.


What is Phase 2?

Well the short answer is – not very different to phase one. In fact, for the Marina very little has/will change until Phase 3.

One clear question everyone is asking above all is; When can one get boating again?

You can now aim for the 15th July. This is provisional.


How does Phase 2 effect the Marina


  • Admittance to the Marina is not available to customers out with the travelling zone.  Approx. 5 miles of the Marina. PLEASE DO NOT BREACH THIS. It causes a lot of unwanted attention.
  • The Marina Office Chandlery and Shop will remain closed.
  • For those within the travel zone, access to the yard must be booked in via details at foot of page.
  • For those within the travel zone, access to pontoons does not require a booking.
  • Unfortunately, staying on your boat at the Marina is not permitted at this stage for anyone.
  • Engineering and Yard operations are open but on a closed-door basis with limited staff.
  • Boat launching has commenced.
  • Engineering work will be prioritised for those vessels being launched.
  • Please adhere to social distancing.

We request you follow the Scottish government advice closely.

Elements included in Nicola Sturgeons announcement included:

  • People should continue to stay in their local area (broadly within five miles) as much as possible and should not travel further for leisure or recreation.
  • Indoor, non-office workplaces, such as factories, may re-open from 29 June (following relevant guidance).
  • Street-access retail can re-open from 29th June (following relevant guidance).  Interiors of shopping malls/centres remain closed for non-essential shops until Phase 3.
  • Re-opening for pubs and restaurants using outdoor spaces will be further reviewed and an update will be provided in 2 weeks.
  • Wearing of face coverings will become mandatory on public transport from 22 June.
