Visitor Guidance - Inverie Pier Procedure

To ensure that social distancing is maintained on Inverie Pier we have set out a procedure for loading/offloading passengers and luggage at Inverie Pier. Please help us keep our community and visitors safe by sticking to this routine if you're coming to visit when Government guidance allows.


Important:

  • We request that you minimise the amount of luggage you bring by packing sensibly

  • Please label your bags with the name of your accommodation so they can be easily identified

  • Face coverings are mandatory on Western Isles Cruises sailings

  • A hand-wash station will be located at the stone shelter on Inverie pier. We encourage you to use this on arrival and before departure.

  • Please observe strict social distancing at all times
