Scarinish Pier Summer Access

The congestion at the Pier area during ferry times is expected to increase this summer, it is already difficult for lorries, tankers , fuel customers and pedestrians etc to move about safely at these times.

As there is no signage informing people which way to go when driving from the ferry they tend to turn left into this dead end road causing serious problems.

A collective agreement between the Businesses and Argyll Estates will ensure that this area be blocked off at these busy times. This will come into effect from Monday May 3rd through till October.

Cones will be placed across the road before the Yellow Hare and access will be restricted unless for business purposes ie (Royal Mail) . Obviously pedestrian access will always be available, this only applies to vehicles.

As a result the fuel station will be closed during this time and operate a new timetable which is detailed below. With the volume of freight and commercial vehicles operating at ferry times in this area we feel this is best practice to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles.
