I reviewed these notes in May 2021. Prices are in line with all the harbours on this coast from Burghead to Cullen (stand fast Lossiemouth) All telephone enquiries will be answered in the harbour office at Buckie except Burghead where we have given the assistant HM's number.

They are hoping to have an Assistant HM covering all the outlying harbours from Buckie but at the time of going to press that was a "hope". Prices have increased but nothing else has changed.

These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2016. The main change is the fact that the HM at Portnockie has retired without replacement so that both harbours are now administered and serviced by Buckie
