Active NTM SN/08


Mariners are advised that any marine incident or near miss should be reported to CMAL’s harbour operator, CalMac Ferries Ltd.

This can be done by use of the Harbour Incident Report Form which is available to download at:

This incident reporting process is for all users of the harbour and should be used as an alternative method of reporting if immediate and direct reporting of an incident to local CalMac port staff is not possible.

A list of CMAL harbours operated by CalMac can be found here:



Where possible, any defect or damage observed to navigational aids or port infrastructure should also be reported directly to local CalMac port staff.

Where this is not feasible, a report can be submitted here:–Infrastructure-Defect-Report

Mariners are reminded that they should avoid mooring to any floating AtoN as it is an offence for any person to unlawfully and intentionally destroy, damage or seriously interfere with any AtoN where it is likely to endanger the safe navigation of any ship.

Further details can be obtained using the contact details below.
