Harbour Light
Tarbat Discovery Centre

This nineteenth-century harbour light was originally used as the port (or left-hand side) navigation light on a ship. It was later reused on a pole at the end of Portmahomack harbour wall as a guiding light for boats returning to harbour at night or in bad weather.  

Portmahomack Harbour is a sheltered natural port within a safe bay. This was crucial for allowing the trade and supply of goods to the remote Portmahomack peninsula.
