About Us

At one end of "Scotland's finest Shortcut" you will find The Yot Spot - a one stop shop for all visitors to Ardrishaig. This beautiful building hosts a yacht chandlers and gift shop with local arts and crafts, a restaurant, showers, a laundry and other services such as bike hire, tourist info and boat brokerage.


The Yot Spot offer a service of assisted passage through the Crinan Canal. We can help with your canal transit if you are short handed on board, or if you simply want to sit back and have someone else do the hard part! For details please see our services page on the link bar above, or to book please call 01546 602777.


The Yot Spot is a new business that has taken almost 5 years to put in place, with thanks to many groups and individuals including the SJ Noble Trust, Foundation Scotland, the Kilfinan Trust and DSL. The idea behind the project was to restore a beautiful waterfront building to its former glory and at the same time work with local businesses to fulfil the potential of the picturesque village.
