Cullivoe in North Yell lies on the western shore of Bluemill Sound. The harbour, built in 1991, remains the most active on the island and is accessible in all states of the tide, sheltering both a pier and a small boat marina.

Blue Mull Sound, with its strong tides and turbulent races, can be hazardous in a northerly wind and there are many inshore rocks on the west coast of Unst, north of Cullivoe. Visiting craft should give this rock-bound coast a berth of at least 2 cables.

Visiting yachts should be able to find a berth at the pier where there is ample water. The marina is only suitable for smaller shoal draft vessels. Berths are very limited and are only available strictly by prior arrangement.

Cullivoe makes a good base for exploring the rest of the Yell, especially with R.G Jamieson and Son's taxi service based nearby (+44 (0)1957 744214), as well as R.S Henderson, who sells marine diesel (+44 (0)1957 744248).
