    There is some useful information on http://marinas.com/browse/marina/GB/SC/ covering a lot of harbours, no pilotage information but good aerial pictures and some basic information. For more information you might consider the FYCA Pilot, the RNYC guide Humber to Fraserburgh (I think) and the Imray Yachtsmans Pilot to North & East Scotland. These are all books (like websites but paper ;-)

    Yes - RNYC Humber to Rattray Head is a must if you want to go in those excellent little places not detailed in Reeds

    Very limited navigational information but for a basic map and text defining local facilities like pontoons, visitors moorings, pubs and restaurants from Peterhead northward you can get a free down load of 'Welcome Anchorages' at www.welcomeanchorages.info

    Edit .... But it does look like that there are not many IT-savvy Sailors on the East Coast.
    Yes! OK!! . there will be one or two . but there doesnt appear to be many!
    Ahhh! . the great East West divide.

    ghostlymoron beat me to it; was going to suggest sailscotland >

    http://sailscotland.co.uk/introducti...st-of-scotland

    Truth is the sailscotland site along with any other info I've found for the East coast is pretty limited in detail.

    What size of boat do you have? Can you dry out? Where on the East coast are you looking for info on? North East (Aberdeen, Stonehaven, Arbroath etc)? The Tay? The Forth? Further South?

    On top of drying out, lots of the smaller harbours aren't suitable for larger boats, and so they don't get mentioned. There are lots of harbours on the Forth for example, but most simply aren't on the radar for publications and websites.

    When I've been doing my homework, I've tended to use Google Maps as a rough and ready desktop virtual exploration tool. I switch to satellite view when I want a closer/better look ...you can often get a good understanding of the space in the harbour (using houses, cars, or boats for scale), and then if I want to know more, I switch to street view (if available) for actual/virtual pictures.

    Then, if I'm really-really interested in physically sailing to a destination, I Google for the local harbourmaster and local sailing club. I often call them and ask about facilities etc.

    This might not be standard practice ...but that's what I do given the lack of info. Hope this helps.
