Small maritime museum on the Pier with a couple of interesting vessels to wander around: the Arctic Penguin, and the old victualling ship, the Puffer. Grand excursion for the kids and anybody with a little interest in maritime history.


Another worthwhile diversion, especially if you've got kids in tow, is the Arctic Penguin, one of the world's last iron sailing ships, which is moored at the loch-side pier. Below decks are lots of interesting displays on Clyde shipbuilding and the Highland Clearances, as well as various 'hands-on' activities. Tel. 302213.
