Kinlochbervie has become one of the major fishing ports in Scotland. Fishing boats, often based in east coast Scottish ports, land their catches here at the fish handling depot built in 1988. The fish is then transported in large refrigerated lorries to destinations across the UK and throughout Europe. Kinlochbervie harbour has itself in recent times diversified and there is now a thriving import trade from the Faroe Islands. Faroese trawlers bring in fish to the market and there is also the import of Faroese fish food for the salmon farming industry which is held in a custom made facility for onward distribution to fish farms throughout Scotland.
