Fundraising


The Inspire Inveraray Board of Trustees are now looking toward continuing the restoration of the pier through Phase 2 Operations, where we will address the timber pier. We are now beginning the fundraising process for Phase 2, with the goal of raising £25,000 in individual gifts and £75,000 in corporate and grants-based funding.

If you are interested in making a financial contribution to Inveraray Pier fund, please consider making a donation using the methods detailed here.

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, GoFundMe and fundraising.

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, and boat tours.
  • 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.
