Welcome to Johnston’s Marine Stores

We have been providing a service to Sailors and fishermen on the Isle of Arran for over forty years, which makes us among the oldest established chandlers in the West of Scotland.

Our stock of Chandlery, Fishing Tackle and Marine clothing is a specially selected mix of the traditional and the most modern. We also sell nautical books, including many which are rare and out of print, and a small selection of out of print Arran books.

Please have a look round our website and call to see us if you are on the island.
