Scarinish Harbour Set for Emergency Repairs
Tiree Trust is pleased to report that following successful discussions with Marine Scotland we have secured emergency funds to make repairs to Scarinish Harbour. The Harbours’ Steering Group has been working with the Trust for the past 2 years to plan improvements for both Scarinish and Milton Harbours and the Trust is now seeking funds to deliver on those plans.
Marine Scotland has approved a grant of up to £200,000 for urgent repairs at Scarinish Harbour but the work must be completed by 31st March 2018. Discussions have already started with a specialist contractor capable of undertaking the work, which includes pressure grouting the end of the pier to stabilise the structure.
A funding package for Milton, which requires a larger investment of around £1.2m, has not yet been secured but discussions are ongoing with HIE and the European Maritime Fisheries Fund to secure the required funds.
