Scots Wha Hae wi Wallace Stone

Our appointed engineering consultants  Wallace Stone working on Badentarbet Pier. With suitable tides and good weather they spent the morning diving off the pier inspecting below the water, and the afternoon  making notes, taking measurements while drying off in the beautiful spring sunshine.

This project (Coigach Piers Feasibility Study) is being part-financed by Coigach Community Council, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Summer Isles Enterprises, Coigach Community Development Company and The European Community Highland Leader 2007 – 2012 Programme.
