Service is our keyword and this, together with our combined experience and knowledge of over 50 years in sailmaking and 20 years of manufacturing in Scotland, ensures that you have a well-proven and reliable product.
All sails and accessories are carefully designed and produced on a "one-off basis" as we are NOT a mass-production sailmaking business.
We carefully select sail cloth with the aid of stretch test graphs for each sail, specifically according to sail type and aspect ratio. It is because of our in-depth knowledge of sail cloth and yachts that we are able to advise our customers of the most suitable sails for their requirements.
Our varied menu means you will never be stuck for choice. Throughout the week we offer delicious gourmet burgers along with classic dishes with a slight contemporary twist and weekly specials.
We are also proud to showcase the best Argyllshire produce in our dishes. Venison from the hills, hand-dived Loch Fyne scallops and locally caught and smoked salmon to name a few.
We strive to prepare all of our dishes in-house using fresh produce. From the tomato & olive bread to BBQ dip, and all of our desserts. You'll never be disappointed at what we have to offer.
