I've done a thorough edit of these notes this year as so much has changed. No public transport, the garage halfway to Thurso has closed, the Caravan site no longer does gas bottles. The only thing that hasn't changed is the Tariff for yachts!!
Update Early Summer 2021

I reviewed these notes in June 2021. Firstly thanks to Terry Robinson for his photo of the new pontoons in the inner harbour. We've found this summer's charges for a visiting yacht. The information about the amenities block was incorrect and I've had to edit that out.

There have been further improvements here for the wandering yachtie; they have an amenities block! So no more wandering through the dock to the Sailing Club for a shower.
