We launch our skiff from the shore just below the Taychreggan Hotel as it gives us good access to the deep water there and allows us to row away from the midges during the summer. The hotel car park, toilets and tea and coffee are also for members’ use with parking up through the hotel arch and up at the back of the hotel.
We row all year round, though of course this is dependent on our fine weather systems. During the summer we row on a Thursday eve at 18:30 and on Sundays usually at 09:30 and with reduced daylight hours during the winter, usually just once at the weekend. If we have coastal row planned then we’ll meet up on the Lorne coastline at a pre-arranged time which is tide dependent.
However, the boat is for all members to enjoy so with an able cox, a crew of 4 rowers and a few hours to spare the boat can be used whenever is suitable for rowers.
