Holy Loch Marina

𝗥𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 is an important time of the year.

During World War One, nearly two thousand Coastguards died at sea, with 1,459 lost in one battle alone and changed the history of the Coastguard forever.

Within hours of Britain declaring war on Germany, a huge number of Coastguards, who were experts in signalling, were called up by the Royal Navy as reservists, and taken by train to crew naval ships, enabling them to go immediately to sea.

On 20 September 1914, a single German submarine sank the cruisers 'Cressy', 'Aboukir; and 'Hogue' off the Thames. 1,400 men drowned - many of whom were Coastguards. Torpedoes sunk 'Hawke' in October and 'Formidible' in January, bringing Coastguard deaths even higher.

HM Coastguard suffered such heavy losses that the Admiralty decided to return the majority of Coastguard personnel back to their stations.

The Location

The Holy Loch Marina can be found in the scenic, peaceful location of the Cowal Peninsula on the River Clyde. Yet it is just 20 minutes by frequent ferry from Gourock, which is less than an hour away from Glasgow.

Dunoon and Cowal is a relaxing, established holiday area and is home to abundant places of local historical interest, as well as town facilities. There is excellent walking and cycling in Argyll Forest Park, as well as superb sea and game fishing. In addition the wildlife of the area is diverse and includes common and grey seals, porpoise and occasionally bottlenose dolphins, basking sharks and minke whales, as well as a wide variety of sea and shore birds.
