Our location: Since May 2016, yacht East End Endeavour has berthed at James Watt Dock Marina in Greenock - just a short journey by road or rail from Glasgow. The Firth of Clyde is an ideal starting point for short sails and longer cruises to destinations throughout the West of Scotland. Widely regarded as a top sailing location, the West Coast boasts spectacular scenery, flora and wildlife, fascinating history and archaeology and vibrant cultural heritage.

Short sail destinations within the Firth of Clyde and Clyde Estuary include Rhu and the Gareloch, Loch Lonh and the Holy Loch, Rothesay and the Kyles of Bute, Largs, Ardrossan and the Isles of Cumbrae and Arran.

Longer cruises could take you to Ireland or the Atlantic Islands of Argyll, such as Gigha, Coll and Tiree; the Small Isles, like Eigg and Canna; or the Western Isles, such as Skye, Lewis and perhaps even St Kilda! EEE has sailed to these places and many more since 1982.

Marine life around the West Coast and islands is abundant: porpoises and seals are spotted frequently and you might also be lucky enough to see dolphins, basking sharks and even minke or pilot whales. Commonly seen birds include gannets and cormorants, but keep your eyes peeled for sea eagles, golden eagles and puffins too.

Activity choices to suit everyone are ample in the West Coast. You could combine your cruise with additional outdoor activities such as dinghy sailing, sea kayaking, cycling round Cumbrae or climbing Goatfell on Arran, or you could explore the area's rich cultural heritage, from castles and archaeological sites to nature reserves and cultural festivals and events.
