Following the partial collapse of Ardrishaig Pier earlier in the year, works are underway to bring the structure back in to use.
The first stage of the project will see the damaged section of the pier, which sits at the mouth of Loch Gilp and the Crinan Canal, rebuilt and reinforced in order to reopen it for freight use.
Following the repairs to bring the pier back into use, the next phase of the project will potentially see Scottish Canals widen and lengthen the pier in order to accommodate larger vessels and increase its capacity. The works would also open up new leisure uses for the structure, with cruise vessels able to berth in the area.
Update 1st February 2018
The second and final phase of the improvement works to Ardrishaig Pier are planned to commence on the 5th March 2018. It is anticipated that the works will be complete by the summer and we update this page as works progress.
