I reviewed these notes in early July 2022. No changes but there is a discrepancy between the Moray website and the local HMs on the price for visiting boats (the website says £20.46 and the locals say £20.00!

I reviewed these notes in May 2021. The Buckie Assistant HM located at Burghead is responsible for the day to day running of Hopeman and, should you wish to visit it would be a good idea to contact him on 07880 086756

It sounds as though this harbour is becoming even more cluttered than hitherto. The dues have gone up in line with the other Moray harbours.
Harbour Availability July 2017
Written by BillH | 7th Jul 2017
I wished to visit Hopeman over the HW period tomorrow (8 July 17) and visited the harbour to check. Your 'Street View' is totally misleading on a number of counts.

Normally we moor on the east wall outside the marina which is fine for a yacht + or - a couple of hours either side of HW. Sadly this is no longetr available as there are now two local small fishing boats as well as a commercial (very large) mooring with chain taking up most of the wall. Your information discourages use of the marina pontoons should any be available.

Such a shame. Have visited many times over the decades without a problem ...

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. Very little change except for a small hike in the prices.
