Change of Harbourmaster
Written by Treat-Mentor | 18th Dec 2018
There is no resident harbourmaster. An assistant harbour master from Buckie, Simon Forrest, now looks after Burghead. Contact (01542) 831700.

UPDATE Autumn 2018
Written by Don Thomson | 8th Nov 2018
This harbour was updated earlier in the year but I failed to note that here. The only change to note is that I entered here in the summer of 2017 ad found things very much as I had interpreted from various publications and websites.
Update Spring 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 4th Apr 2016
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. This is still mainly a commercial harbour and rates for visiting boats have gone up a small amount in line with the rest of the Moray Council Harbours.
