Kirkcudbright Harbour

Kirkcudbright Harbour is the busiest commercial fishing harbour in Dumfries and Galloway with much of the landed catch being processed locally.

Mariner Notices

On occasion we will publish active notices to let mariners know of any information, safety issues or weather conditions that may have an effect on the use of and access to the harbour.

We advise mariners to check for any active mariner notices in advance to using the harbour:

Overview

The Quay, harbour office and Pontoon Marina lies on the River Dee below Kirkcudbright Bridge. The pontoon Marina itself, can accommodate up to 50 small craft. Access to the marina is restricted to users only.

Although the Harbour Office is not permanently manned, the Harbour Master can be contacted outwith manned times.

Harbour tidal range and depth

The fishing vessels which can use the quay have drafts typically of 2.5 to 4.5 meters and take the ground for 2-3 hours either side of low water. Smaller vessels with a draft up to 2 meters can be accommodated at the marina. Care is needed when berthing as tidal streams can be very strong.

Facilities

Power, water and fuel supplies are provided on the town Quay and Marina.  Toilets and showers are also available at the Marina.

The Town of Kirkcudbright itself offers a range of shops, hotels, cafes, restaurants and banks. Leisure facilities, including a swimming pool, golf course, bowling green and tennis courts are available along with art galleries. Contact
