Byelaws were introduced on Loch Lomond to improve safety, reduce disturbance to wildlife, local people and visitors. Some byelaws apply to all users of Loch Lomond however, legally, if you are using motorised vessels on Loch Lomond you’ll need to register it with the National Park Authority and display the registration number on your vessel.
Re-registration forms for 2022 will be posted out at the end of January 2022. These can either be posted back to the Boat Registration Officer, Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway, Pier Road, Balloch, G83 8QX or brought in person to Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway. If re-registering in person please ensure you bring identification as detailed below. If you require further assistance please call us on 01389 722030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquiries.

When you arrive at the Slipway to register or re-register, you’ll need to bring a few things with you…
If you are registering for the first time whether in person, by post, by email or re-registering in person at Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway, you’ll need to provide proof of identity. This can be either a UK photocard driving licence or two forms of identification, one photographic confirming your name (such as a passport) and the other to confirm your address (utility bill or bank statement).
If registering in person your ID must be originals, not copies. If you are registering by post or email, please scan your original document and include a copy with your completed form. We cannot return scanned copies but they will be securely destroyed once your identity has been verified.
Please note: Use of the slipway for non-powered vessels is free, provided they are not launched using a vehicle.
At the moment, we are only accepting payments in person by credit or debit card. Bring your completed form to Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway. For security reasons we are no longer able to accept cash payments at the slipway.
