I reviewed these notes in July 2022. No changes and Bert's still here
Great harbour master

Lovely harbour with excellent fish restaurant nearby. But the stand out for us was the helpful harbour master.

I stayed in the inner harbour. 1.7 draught was no issue.
The marina manager is an amazingly helpful guy! I sail singlehandedly and had to leave at 05:00am the next day and he said he will come and help me then and he did as he said!
Fees are £20 per night for vessels less than £12m and £25 for above 12m.
The wifi and phone reception was problematic though.

There should be no depth problems on the long pontoon for normal draft yachts but 2m+ draft should contact the harbour, especially at Springs, for advice. The price has gone up. Bertie is still I/C here
Whitehills - a good place for a bit of rest before crossing the Morray Firth.

Bertie, the harbour master has always been most helpful on my three visits. I have dried out to scrub, moved into the inner harbour for a nice quiet couple of days, enjoyed some chats and been helped out getting spares. There are good facilities there including a pleasant crew room and laundry, along with some spotless showers. Free wi-fi is available but I could only get it at high water but no problem in the crew room. An extension lead for the dongle cured this wee problem.

Music nights at the hotel are great, as are the delightful Spey whiskies. There are shops for most essentials with buses to larger towns for everything else.
