Salen Bay

Salen, Ardnamurchan Peninsular, Lochaber, Highland, West Scotland

Salen Bay is a picturesque bay on the beautifully scenic Loch Sunart. The Jetty has been under new ownership since 2010 and a friendly welcome is given.

The spacious 9-berth pontoon has 12m long fingers with depths generally ranging from 3m to 8m. There are 4 visitor buoys which are red with orange pickups.

New facilities include a general store/off licence with a tearoom and a toilet/shower facility. The Salen Hotel is a short walk from the Jetty and provides excellent restaurant and bar facilities.

We offer an optional reservation service from June to August for both pontoon berths and buoys by ringing Jan or Mark (max 24 hours in advance).
