It's good that people are responding to the call, but it would be clearer and more accessible for future reference if each site had it's own topic heading with as much info as possible, instead of being lumped together in one thread. :cheers

The slip is quite narrow, but yes you could launch no problem, apart from on a low tide as the slip dries out on most tides, you just need to be careful as there is a lot of rocks either side of the slip, so when returning make sure you heading directly at the slip and not from an angle,
Ps the slips at Tralee holidays, Highfield is just up the road is owned by Tralee so you have access to it,

I visited there in May. I'd happily launch a 5.7m on that particular slip using a van but I'd take a long rope just in case you need to keep the van further up the slipway for better traction. Obviously you will need to plan your launch / recovery as it's not going to be possible at LW.

You've already got it Martin: a section for Camping Caravan/Motorhome boat launch sites, It just needs people to create a new topic for individual sites in that section. :thumbsup

There's a site 3 miles North of Ullapool called Ardmair Point. Cracking campsite surrounded by water on 3 sides. There is a slip into the loch too. Great access to the Summer Isles weather permitting. I've stayed there many times and the view is awesome. From experience they're never fully booked.

Hi My name is Eddie,
Fishery Creek on Hayling Island. is a brill campsite and has its own slip into the water, Sparkes Marina is an excellent place to visit as is the Northerny Marina.
I have a 4.6Mt Mercury ocean runner with a Mercury 60 on the back.

All the best
