Kinlochbervie harbour

A safe natural harbour, Kinlochbervie is within easy steaming distance of the prolific fishing grounds of the North and West Coast of Scotland. This minimises steaming time and fuel costs and maximises fishing time for expensive boats and gear.

Fish is sold through the port’s auction market by the Kinlochbervie Fish Selling Company, which provide a comprehensive service, including supply of ice, stores and fishing gear. Modern refrigerated transport is available to take fish to destinations in the rest of the UK and Europe.
