Peter (see below) - look at the Stroma page at www.ports.org.uk/port.asp?id=544. You''ll see in the final paragraph details of how to get to the island.

My forbears were the Kennedys who owned Stroma from about 1659 till 1721 when they moved to Braehead on South Ronaldsay. One colourful character Murdoch was said to have entertained guests by using the mummified corpses of his father & grandfather as drums. I believe there is a Kennedy mausoleum in the graveyard and think I recognised it on a photo on the internet?
This year some family members descended from the Kennedies are hoping to visit. Perhaps 6 adults or perhaps 8. Would it be possible to arrange a boat trip?
Dates to be decided. Where would we depart from?
Best wishes
Peter Semple...lives near Stirling

Following on Mike''s comment below, if ''usage'' includes Leisure, then you can assume that yachts are welcome. Many commercial ports do have facilities for leisure craft, of course.

Alternatively, you can go to Advanced Search. If, for example, you ask for ''Leisure'' (under Usage) in ''England'', you get 160 locations.

This site is simply brilliant! The only thing I would add is to clarify the ports that welcome visiting small yachts. Some mainly commercial ports don''t at all. Some do. It''s not meant to be a pilot book of course but I find it difficult to know if Yachts are welcome.

My compliment to the designer,
It would be better to sort the port according to their useage commercial eg container, fuel, ro-ro, general cargo, bulk ect. that will be more comfortable to find the best port for transschipment.

The photos were excellent.

My best regards to every one.

The photo of the of the Ardnadam Pier, even in its current dilapidated state brings back many memories.
In 1984, I spent eight months attached to the Clyde Area Shore Patrol, assigned the duties of Beach Guard at the end of the Ardnadam Pier.
We worked with the Ministry of Defense Police. The MODP were true professionals and great friends.

What a port it is now. when I was there there was only one jetty not much more, I was in A troop 52 Squadron RCT 1975 -1979 at Marchwood and enjoyed most of the time even the round the clock off loading and loading.

Re: Cley next the Sea.
Cley was one of the Glaven Ports, whose history was described in a book by Mr. Hooton (?).
However, despite the silt and the difficult entry to Blakeney Harbour, many of us still enjoy messing about in boats.
Since 1994 I have been chair of the Cley Boat Club. We have moorings for our various craft in the River Glaven by Cley Mill. It''s a lovely unspoilt place, but the narrow river means only dinghies and small craft can reach there. But we wouldn''t change it for the world!!!
