The Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway and car park remains closed in light of Covid-19.

We will be opening facilities gradually as it is safe to do so, both for those using them and for the staff working at them.

Loch users who have purchased a multiple launch pass will be contacted and have their pass extended for the duration our site is closed.

We will continue to provide up to date information on visitor sites and facilities here

Are you planning on using a motorised vessel on Loch Lomond? You’ll need to register it with us. We introduced Byelaws to increase safety on the water and to reduce the impact the National Park’s visitors have on the loch and its wildlife.

Charges apply to motorised boat launches at the slipway. These charges help us to provide facilities and services across the National Park including at the Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway.

Please note that for security reasons we no longer accept cash payments at Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway.

For more information, please visit our boat registration page.
