The Objectives

  • Purchase and re-development of Inveraray Pier to benefit the community and the local economy by Inspire Inveraray, with the partnership of Inveraray Community Council.
  • Raise purchase and restoration funds through grant applications, go fund me and fund raising.

The Aims

  • To regenerate the pier as part of a tourist town with lots of visitors, befitting local businesses.
  • To regenerate the pier for locals to use for leisure and accessing water sports and fishing activities.
  • To offer opportunities to local businesses and budding entrepreneurs to use the pier for activities such as water sports, fishing, seafood shacks, boat tours etc.
  • To offer the opportunity for investment for example in moorings, pontoons, and slipways.
  • To offer the opportunity to increase use of the pier from yachts, small cruisers, and the navy.
  • To include involvement from other like-minded parties such as Historical Scotland and Clyde Marine Planning Partnership.
  • To connect surrounding towns of the Loch such as Dunoon, Lochgilphead, Cairndow, Strachur and many more. Piers are uniquely valued across all ages and social groups. It just takes outreach. More landing facilities in Argyll will create a better economy.
  • To be fully accessible, flat, free, and open to everyone.
  • To improve the biodiversity in the Loch, which can be used by schools to develop children’s education, introducing them to the marine environment.
