‘Door still open’ to Rothesay harbour row resolution

Argyll Workboats' MV Seahorse II enters Rothesay harbour on July 15, 2013 after a six-year absence at the root of a row between the firm's owner and harbour operators Argyll and Bute Council.

Argyll Workboats' MV Seahorse II enters Rothesay harbour on July 15, 2013 after a six-year absence at the root of a row between the firm's owner and harbour operators Argyll and Bute Council.

 

Argyll and Bute Council faces a bill of almost £250,000 if it loses a court case in a long-running row with a local businessman over berthing rights at Rothesay harbour, The Buteman understands.

Calum McMillan of Argyll Workboats is seeking compensation from the council after being repeatedly refused permission to berth his vessel, Seahorse II, at her home port over a period of six years.

“The council has been made aware that our door is still open to negotiations,” Mr McMillan said this week.

“But if they haven’t come back to us by the middle of February we will pursue them through the courts for the full amount.”
