Local Moorings

Tobermory Harbour holds exclusive rights to lay and maintain the moorings within the Inner Harbour with the exception of the RNLI and Cal-Mac/CMAL Ferry moorings.
Tobermory Harbour maintains and insures the grid of local mooring blocks, surge chains and ground chains. Each anchor point is known as a 'Mooring Block'.
Boat owners wishing to lease a Mooring Block, onto which they will be given permission to attach their own riser, should apply to the Harbour Office.

The Local Moorings have a waiting list procedure. Local residents owning boats are given preference.
