The Council own and manage a number of piers and harbours and as a Statutory Harbour Authority comply with the Port Marine Safety Code. In addition there are 17 aids to navigation situated throughout the marine infrastructure that comply with the IALA standards.
The piers and harbours throughout Argyll and Bute see a lot of activity throughout the year in various forms. This is both through commercial and leisure. Due to our location one of our main industries is fishing and transportation of goods via the sea. There are charges therefore for several things such as the shipping of goods, vehicles and passengers, storage and harbour vessel fees.
There are many passenger ferries that pass throughout our ports and harbours and you can find the sailing times and prices here.
