About the Club

Tarlair Model Boat Club is based at Tarlair Recreation Area at Macduff, on the Moray Firth coast of North-East Scotland.

The club was formed in 1992, by a small band of modelling enthusiasts who wanted to promote the hobby of building and sailing radio-controlled model boats.

Tarlair was originally built as an outdoor swimming pool in the 1930's. It was a major attraction to the residents of the area and to visitors who chose to spend their holidays in the North East. Like many similar attractions, Tarlair lost its attraction with the advent of the foreign package holiday. Swimming made way for rowing boats in the early 1990's and the pool closed altogether in the late 90's. The Model Boat Club are now the only regular users of the facility.

There are a wide range of model boats within the club, but being based in an area which has grown up around the fishing industry, model fishing boats are a very prominent feature. The club holds regular meetings on Sunday afternoons throughout the year. The only exceptions are normally at Christmas and New Year and on some Sundays in the summer when the members are putting on displays at local fetes and galas. (Details of where and when these are can be found on the newsletter page of this site)

Visitors are always welcome to come along to see the models. The meetings are from 2.00 p.m. to around 4.00 p.m.
