Excellent list with plenty of information which will be of great use to me in the Moray Firth sailing area.

Great website. You may have to update my home harbour of Porthmadog as it it will soon have a small marina (pontoon berths with electricity & water) of its own!

Thanks for the obvious work that has gone into this.

Whilst it''s not possible on this website to see the volumes of cargo handled by ports, you can download the latest document (Focus on Ports 2006) from the Department for Transport at http://www.dft.gov.uk/stellent/groups/dft_transstats/documents/page/dft_transstats_611027.hcsp. This provides the sort of information you are probably looking for.

Nice work, my friend! Is there any way one can find out from the site - which are the biggest ports in terms of volume handled ? It will be nice to know if the data can be given in a descending order.

I have come accross this wonderful website whilst searching for a list of UK harbours/ports that involve fishing. about the same size as whitstable in kent. I wonder if you have tips on how to find this list in existence , or maybe when i''ve put it together it can be of interest as a cross category..

I am was born in Musselburgh in 1964, and have been living in Arizona (USA) since 1996.
I love old songs of the sea, and thought I wanted to write something about the Fisherrow fishwives, which brought me to your web site.
It was indeed a pleasure to view the photographs of the harbour, and read the brief history of it.
Thank you for bringing me close to home.

thanks for the information, we are based on the Axe and are looking for sites to dry out against a wall and an alternative to Weston.

Very impressive site - and very helpful for research. Keep up the good work - like Bob''s photos.

Hi Bob,

Nice site..I am sure the fishing fraternity will find it useful. Some interesting information on harbour sizes too!

This has the potential to be an excellent site. What is missing at present is a sketch chartlet of the harbours. For the west coast of Scotland you might care to liaise with Martin Lawrence who produces the Imray pilot books.

Viewed the site today, very interesting and informative. I am sure it will be very beneficial to sailors from all over Europe, and also to the Maritime Enthusiast.

Congratulations and very well done.

Good idea for a site. I used msn 5.2 to browse and the map and place names and dots all came up on separate bits!! A wee glitch. Appreciate incorporating Gemini.

Nice website Bob, well built and very interesting, will get a good read over the holidays when all the fuss dies down!
Happy Christmas

Nor did I Rob! I thought I might find 400 - 500. I''m still finding new places, albeit semi-derelict jetties in Scotland, usually.

Very informative website. I was not aware there were this many ports around the UK.

Too right, Peter! This is just a hobby - I''ve still got to do the day job.

Congratulations Bob. Pretty comprehensive for a work in progress but probably one that could take over your life completely :o)

Good luck
