A community-owned pontoon next to Raasay’s ferry terminal
Raasay’s pontoon opened in June 2023, and will operate from Easter to October each year (exact dates will vary) and, all being well, the water and power services will be operational by the end of July 2023. Accessed from the ferry car park, there is a pathway and two access bridges leading down to the pontoon which is oriented east to west. Remaining afloat at all tides, there are three finger pier berths and a hammerhead at the end of the pontoon.
The pontoon can accommodate up to 24 boats. There are:
- 8 berths for 12m yachts
- (NB on neap tides, yachts up to 15m can use the finger pier berths and the hammerhead)
- 3 berths for 10m yachts
- 2 berths for 8m yachts
- 6 berths for 6m boats
- 5 berths for <5m boats
