The owners of the Wemyss Bay ferry terminal are examining options for essential repairs which are needed to the pier structure.

Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) wants to carry out repairs to the fendering on the south face of the pier, where the Rothesay ferry berth and linkspan are located, and also to the concrete roundhead at the end of the pier itself, following damage caused by bad weather over the last few months.

Lorna Spence, CMAL’s director of harbours, told The Buteman: “Both CalMac Ferries and Transport Scotland know the work has to be done and we are looking at various options in terms of the cost and disruption implications.

“Once we have an idea of the impact on operations those options would have, we will be able to proceed further and will keep users informed.”
