Taigh Solais

The Harbour Building. Opened in July 2008, Taigh Solais has operated as the centre of Marine and Harbour business in Tobermory Harbour since.

On the ground floor we operate our open to the public facilities and Mull Aquarium.

Six offices to let on the first floor.

HM Coastguard base.

Compressor facility.


Our twin Hammerhead pontoon provides berthing for up to 50 boats.

A “North Arm”, has been added to the pontoon system providing berthing which is by arrangement only. Developed for safe crew access and all tidal berthing for fishing, aquaculture and light commercial.  It frees up extra space on the main pontoons for visiting leisure craft bringing benefit to all.


In the bay there are two sections of moorings, Visitor and Local. Local Moorings are popular but if there are none available you can go on the waiting list.

We have a total of 38 Visitor Moorings of varying weight allowance providing for boats of up to 80 tonnes.


There are three separate slipways in Tobermory:


- The Ledaig Slip, recommended for RIBs and trailer launched boats up to 25ft maximum.

- The CMAL slip used exclusively by the Caledonian MacBrayne Roll on-Roll off ferry.

- The Beach Slip, providing access to the beach for the purpose of cleaning and depositing new sand.

Boat Park

The boat park at Ledaig is landscaped, maintained and managed by Tobermory Harbour with storage facilities dependent on avaiability.

Four storage compounds leased to local businesses.

Fuel Berth

Located at the end of the Hammerhead on the most Northern Pontoon, the Fuel Berth is operated and maintained by the local "Harbour Garage"

Mull Aquarium

Europe's first Catch and Release Aquarium.

Creatures are carefully brought in by local fisherman and visiting divers. However, they only stay a short time before being returned to their natural habitat.  

Located on the ground floor of Taigh Solais, Mull Aquarium offers a fun and informative outing for every member of the family.
