Lots of lovely boats to see here,fishing boats and yachts of all sizes. There are several bronzes in the surrounding area, a herring girl, with a basket of herrings and a fisherman wearing his sou’wester. The grandchildren were able to shake his hand.
A really nice wee harbour.

It's a fine harbour to walk around. Lots to see around. Birds are mainly gulls.
Nice walks on a nice day.

Lovely traditional fishing harbour, nice to walk around. Very picturesque, especially when seen from the Lews Castle grounds (within walking distance from the harbour) or from aboard the ferry on a sunny day.
