Loch Clash Redevelopment – The Building Comes Down

In one hour, on 7 March 2016, the former offices of the Kinlochbervie Fish Selling Company were demolished as part of the pier’s redevelopment as a future community hub.  Historically, Loch Clash has been the centre of  fishing in Kinlochbervie. Originally fish were landed and the markets held in the open air on the pier.  Local people remember today’s building being constructed in the 1950s but it has now been vacant for over 30 years.

It has taken over 10 years to assemble the land and secure the funding.  Now that work has finally begun, we have been gratified to receive a great many positive comments from local people about the development.  But today is also tinged with a little sadness;  so many current and former residents of Kinlochbervie have fond memories of working in this building (sometimes for many years).
