Ulsta

The small marina at Ulsta is an 'L' shaped pontoon system, one arm being 20m and the other 10m. It is predominantly used by small fishing boats but space should be available for cruising boats to tie up.

The small marina at Ulsta is an 'L' shaped pontoon system, one arm being 20m and the other 10m. It is predominantly used by small fishing boats but space should be available for cruising boats to tie up. It is situated inshore from the ferry terminal and is therefore not visible from boats travelling through Yell Sound. The ferry terminal’s toilets are available and there is a well stocked shop at the head of the pontoon walkway.

There are channel markers, visible from Yell Sound, that direct boats into the marina. However, caution must be exercised by deep-draft vessels, which may have insufficient depth at low water once they have passed through the markers.

There is no water or power on the pontoons.

Approaches

  • The approach to Ulsta is clearly charted and a navigation light on the mole arm guides navigators towards the ferry terminal entrance. Once within the mole the port and starboard markers placed on two substantial supports mark the approved channel into the marina.
  • Care should be taken by visiting craft to allow arriving and departing ferries unhindered navigation.
