Full Description

A small concrete, stone and wood built pier on Loch Harport, Skye, of probable late C19 construction. The pier appears on the 2nd Edition OS Map, and so dates at latest to 1903.

The pier was subjected to a photographic record in 2012 by Wallace Stone as part of a condition on a planning application to repair and upgrade the access road, construct a boat launching slipway, and install a pontoon and an associated access walkway.
