Holy Island Harbour.

The small harbour at Holy Island is used mainly by pleasure craft and a few local fishing boats.

It has a facility for removing boats from the water for maintenance by means of a ramp and tracks up which the boats are hauled.

In the 19th century Lime was exported from a jetty by the castle. It was brought to the lime kilns beside the castle from the north end of the island by a small wagonway, the trackbed of which still exists. After being burnt in the kilns it was then taken to the jetty on another wagonway.
