I reviewed these notes in August 2022; no changes
Update Early Summer 2021

I reviewed these notes at the end of June 2021. This harbour is no longer anything to do with Bangor Marina (which is now run by "Boatfolk") and is now run by the Ards and North Down Council. They have laid visitors buoys but they have been let to local residents!

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. Quay Marinas are still "in charge" here and the HM is an employee of theirs but the feeling I get is that this little harbour is left pretty well to look after itself!
Update Spring 2016 (Correction)
