The Yot Spot

The Yot Spot-Ardrishaig-Nr Oban-What To Do-Attractions-Scotland


The Yot Spot is an attraction for visitors to Argyll. Based at Pier Square in Ardrishaig, the business hosts a comfortable restaurant, a yacht chandlers and gift shop, toilets and showers, a laundry, and a meeting room, tourist info and boat brokerage which is currently run by Forbes Boat Care.

The Saloon Bar and Restaurant  offers a comfortable, friendly warm  environment.  It is bright and comfortable with a nautical theme . We serve meals including breakfasts, lighter bites, fresh baking, teas and coffees.

Our chef has a real passion for food and likes to focus on fresh local ingredients and stamping dishes with his own flavour. We also have a take away counter for the restaurant, open throughout the season and the only place to get our unique "Canal Hampers". Take your fresh filled rolls along with you for your day out.


Our large, well stocked Yacht Chandlers and Gift shop sells  boating essentials including filters, paints, ropes and even a Nancy Black section containing clothing for sailing. The gift shop has local arts and crafts along with Scottish souvenirs, maps and postcards, and our friendly local staff can help you with any tourist info you may need.  


The public toilets and showers open anytime that the Yot Spot is open for public use, and 24 hours for canal users. The showers are coin operated.


The offices and meeting room upstairs. The meeting room can be booked by the hour by anyone, and refreshments from the Galley can be provided when using the meeting room.


We have a range of bikes available to hire by the day for anyone wanting to explore "Scotland's finest short cut". The Crinan Canal is great for cycling, with a canal-side path all the way from Ardrishaig to Crinan.

Please ask about VIP bike hire where you can have a picnic packed and ready for you! What could be more enjoyable than that.
