Small and beautiful tourist destination

Tobermory is located on the east coast of the Isle of Mull, in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands. Tobermory Harbour is a statutory harbour authority and community hub port, run for the benefit of the community.

The colourful houses on the harbour are instantly recognisable from a thousand tourist brochures, and marine tourism is the mainstay of the harbour.

Tobermory is an important stop on the UK cruise ship itinerary, attracting 30-40 ships each year which anchor in the bay, ferrying passengers ashore. Private boats are also an important element of marine tourism, with the harbour providing 38 visitor moorings and a 55-berth marina.

The harbour supports a growing aquaculture industry, with the sea farm boats moored on the new marina breakwater pontoons, plus a small fishing fleet and other light commercial vessels.

The harbour team have an excellent reputation for customer service, and pride themselves on meeting and greeting each visiting boat. Creating Covid-secure personal service was supported by the ease of sending confirmation emails and texts, taking the card machine onto the pontoon, and using Quick Pay.

Harbour manager Rob Macdonald said: I can’t imagine doing this season without Harbour Assist.”
