The coast of Lochaber is studded with islands and peninsulas including Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point of the British mainland, and the beautiful inner Hebridean 'small isles' of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Such a seascape has its challenges. Tidal currents are strong in the narrow sea lochs and underwater hazards tend to be made of granite, so you’ll need good navigation skills when sailing in this area in Scotland.
As you would expect in such a spectacular sailing environment, Lochaber has a lively yachting scene - Lochaber Yacht Club hosts a series of Open Regattas and hugely popular Travellers’ events throughout the summer and both Glencoe Boat Club and West Ardnamurchan Regatta Club also have regular events.
Vessel Hire & Courses
There are several places to hire a dinghy or charter a yacht. If you’re a beginner or want to improve your skills, why not take a sailing course? Or if you’d like to enjoy being out on the water without the effort, take a leisurely trip along the canal in a well-appointed vessel complete with skipper. See our sailing activity providers to find out more.

So what is No Fuss all about? Well basically we love the outdoors, we love events and the fun, camaraderie and craic. We have tried to strip back some of the rules and regulations involved with sport that can be a wee bit off putting at times.
