    Although limited for shelter this picturesque anchorage is excellent for privacy and ease of access to local amenities. The beach is safe to leave the dinghy and a short walk over a timber bridge takes you to the Wineport which serves excellent bar food. Arran Aromatics and the Arran Cheese shop is also close by. A walk of around half a mile along "Fisherman’s Walk" which is behind the beach takes you to the town of Brodick. Which has a variety of amenities.

    The 15 blue mooring buoys in the southern part of the bay are public access. There can be a bit of swell which can lead to an uncomfortable night. Dinghy ashore to a slipway where there are a variety of amenities available.
