Arran Lifeboat Station

Arran (Lamlash) Lifeboat Station

The B class Atlantic 75 lifeboat at Arran (Lamlash) covers the inshore waters around the coast of Arran. To ensure a coordinated rescue service the station cooperates and trains with the Arran Mountain Rescue Team and the auxiliary Coastguards.

This station is classed as a Discover station. ​Our crews from Discover stations are equally welcoming to visitors but many of these stations were built before visitors were considered. These stations normally open their boathouse doors during the summer months.
