After some consideration, we have decided to CLOSE the Harbour Office for the time being. The safety of our staff and customers is of utmost importance to us at Tarbert Harbour Authority, so we feel it is sensible to do so.


You can still contact us on 01880 820344 or email us at, with staff working from home. In an emergency, you can contact us on the same telephone number, or you can contact Phil Robertson on 07713 332319.


Subject to Government advice, we intend to make gas deliveries, top up your electricity bollard and deliver chandlery supplies by prior notification if needed. It is also our intention to supply red diesel for vessels, but this must be pre-arranged by contacting the Harbour Office.


Tarbert Harbour is now closed to all non-essential visiting vessels.


Essential vessels are classed as: Fishing vessels, Fish-Farm Support vessels and vessels seeking refuge in an emergency.


Notice to mariners is to follow in due course.


If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Stay safe everyone.
