Eriskay Harbour

About Us

Acarsaid Mhor in Eriskay has two visitor mooring buoys and adequate space for several anchored vessels. Pontoons are currently being extended and whilst geared up to the fishing industry will offer limited availability to visiting yachts. Water is available on the pontoon. The harbour is unmanned although harbour staff visit at irregular intervals. The shop and pub are a healthy walk away! All Western Isles visitor moorings are now subject
to (modest) charges, details on their website. Eriskay is where Prince Charles Edward Stuart landed on 23 July 1745, prior to the Jacobite Rebellion. In February 1941, the SS Politician ran aground just north of Eriskay on the island of Calvay, as dramatised in the film Whisky Galore.
