This traditional harbour is used by a mixture of fishing and pleasure vessels. Visitors raft on pontoons or the wooden screen jetty along with local yachts.
The town has a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants etc, and a rail connection to Glasgow and Stranraer. It is recommended that visitors call the mobile number prior to arrival. Harbour channel depth is usually 1m plus chart datum: ie 3m of water at half tide, and is not usually dredged to 2.6 metres + chart datum as shown on charts.
Entrance not recommended 2 hours either side of low water when there is possibly less than 2 metres at the bar.
