New Life for Old Harbour

Iain Ramage in the Press and Journal writes about the upcoming Loch Clash and Beyond event.

Kinlochbervie’s plans for breathing life into Clash Harbour are gathering pace.  Talks will be held this week aimed at drawing-up plans to breathe new life into a remote corner of the Highlands. The community of Kinlochbervie in north-west Sutherland acquired a site which includes a redundant harbour several years ago. It now has permission to clear the coastal one-acre spot at Loch Clash to make way for new facilities.
