About Barcaldine

(From the Marine Resources Centre website):

The Marine Resource Centre (MRC) is rapidly becoming the most important commercial development campus for marine resources in the West of Scotland. MRC has a unique range of features which comprise industrial development potential, a large high quality freshwater supply producing hydro-electric power, a deep water pier, slipways and an unrivalled range of existing facilities and infrastructure.

MRC has established a small highly skilled engineering team providing on-site support to its users. Other core business includes fish food storage and distribution, and winter yacht storage, both indoors and out.

Utilising the existing slipway, undercover facilities, outdoor hard standing and moorings, MRC already provides undercover winter storage for around 100 craft and a variety of commercial marine services. Cruising facilities include 50 swinging moorings and complementary facilities include toilets, showers, car parking and secure dinghy storage. Water is available alongside.

Fishing trips can be arranged from Barcaldine Pier.
