MOORINGS OPEN: The Visitor Moorings in Portree were inspected and overhauled in April 2021, and are now available for use. 

Moorings Available

Within the Bay, The Portree Moorings Association provides the opportunity to anchor free of charge, or to take advantage of one of the secure visitor’s moorings that can be hired on a per night basis. Moorings cannot be pre-booked and are available on a first come first served, basis.

There are presently 13 visitors’ moorings available in the bay: 8 yellow buoys in two rows parallel to the north shore (10 tonne max) and 5 yellow ones (7.5 tonne max) on the inner trot, running east from Cuddy Point (Rubha na Cuidigean). There are 7 buoys in total on this inner trot but the 2 nearest to Cuddy Point are private and not available to visitors, although marked with similar yellow buoys. All visitor moorings have pick-ups, and are regularly inspected by professional mooring divers to ensure fitness for purpose.

The nightly fee is £15.00, and this should be deposited, along with a note of the vessel’s name, in an honesty box located in the door of the RNLI Station, on the main pier. Alternatively, payment can be made electronically to:-

The identity of visiting craft is monitored, (a) through information recorded by Association members on the water, and (b) from shore based observations; in order that a picture of visitor mooring usage can be compiled for our records.

In strong south westerlies the moorings can become somewhat exposed, but shelter can be found by anchoring in Camas Ban, the sandy beach on the south side of the entrance to Portree Bay.
