About Tigh an Quay (Tanera Mr)

Tanera Mor was a successful herring fishing port in the early 19th Century but suffered the same decline as much of the Scottish herring fleet. Remains of the processing plant are still in evidence behind the harbour, which is still used occasionally by fishing boats and leisure craft.

The 19th century harbour was re-built in the 1930s and 40s and dries at low water.
