These notes were reviewed in July 2019. Firstly the prices have changed and these have been noted. Importantly they are building a new marina behind Goat Island (Eilean na Gobnair) and dredging started there in May of this year. Additionally there is a new SCM off the Beasts of Holm (where the HMY Iolaire came to grief at the end of WWI) and a new yellow(lit) Special Mark has been laid to the SE of No3 Pier. We have shown these on the charts in our gallery.
UPDATE APRIL 2017

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. The poles marking the shallows to the West of the Marina pontoons are now shown on the Admiralty chart and are lit. They've put the price up for 2017 to £2.40 pmpn.
