Tobermory Harbour

Can anyone advise the best place to go ashore for an hour or so at Tobermory?
My chart shows a slip by the Coastguard Hut, Macbraynes Pier (ahem, probably not), Fishermans Pier or Pier (ruined)?? Last time I went in there I could not see an obvious disembarkation point.

I have a feeling that when we stopped off there we moored on the CalMac pier, but I can't remember for sure (although it was definitely at that end of town).

Tobermory

As Craig says, the pontoons are relatively new - about 12 months or so.
They are at the far end of the bay, and McGochans pub is just a hop away.
There is a courtesy box at the gate for visiting boats ( proceeds go to the harbour authority) and facilities are excellent.
Do not use the seaward T end of the pontoons as this is used by local commercial boats but any of the clear finger berths should be fine. Try and avoid the ones close to the shoreline as water gets very lean at low water.
Enjoy your visit - and if you can drag youself past ( via ?? ) McGochans, who do decent food, the Mishnish at the far end of the main street is always worth a call.

Have a look on boatlaunch.co.uk and you will see a picture of the slipway and in the foreground a corner of the pontoon. This year the pontoons are even better. Tobermory is one of the best stopping off points in the area.

I think that it will become obvious in due course that Spencer the Painter was the culpit, and not me!

John

You know, I am getting really worried about some of you.
Those old enough should have gone to work, and the others to school.
Why are you still at home watching kids TV?

Last time I was there was 1995. Tour of Mull Rally. Did the beer rally after the main event along tobermorey front finishing at Neil McKinnon's place. Not very drunk, just totally out of it

Keep thinking about dragging the boat up there
