Holy Loch Marina

𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗰𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗹𝗲𝗴𝘀, 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀!

We are aware of a number of people taking to the Clyde for exercise/lesuire. From open water swimmers to stand up paddle boarders and even anglers.

It is against current Government advice to exercise/pass time in such ways.

We appreciate that these persons may be experienced and have the relevant safety equipment, however, anyone can get into difficulties.

Let's say for example that an open water swimmer is in difficulty and can't make it back to shore, someone has spotted them and dialled 999 for the Coastguard.
The Coastguard will dispatch Coastguard Rescue Teams, Lifeboats and possibly a Helicopter.
They'll also request the assistance of the Ambulance Service and possibly the Fire Service.

Coastguard Rescue Team's have been busy around the Coast carrying out "Mutual Aid" and responding to incidents.
Mutual Aid is where we help another service, for example, patrolling beaches or delivering goods to vulnerable people.
The Ambulance Service is already stretched from the COVID-19 crisis and would have to redirect resources to the casualty.
The Coastguard Helicopter may be needed to transfer a patient from a remote island to the mainland.

Please be sensible during these difficult times.

Before carrying out any sort of watersports or lesuire activity, think of all eventualities.

#StayHomeSaveLivesWe appreciate that for some people their exercise be it surfing or swimming might ordinarily involve using the coast and its resources.

But we would ask people to think seriously about the unintended consequences of what could happen if something went wrong while they were in the sea or at the coast.

As we know, all too well, the sea can be a dangerous place for even the most experienced swimmer or surfer.

We will continue to urge people to give the coast a miss because we want to prevent our emergency responders and their families being put at risk of coronavirus and also to reduce avoidable pressure on the NHS. #StayHomeSaveLives

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.
