The future

The Group wish to see the harbour developed as a marina and become a visitor attraction that will benefit the community and visitors to the village

There will be approximately sixty berths for leisure craft and small working boats

Facilities might include

Pontoons with access ramp/s Power Water Fuel Toilets Seating Lighting Security Workshop facilities Clubhouse/Heritage area/Training Centre/Meeting place

Once established it is hoped the marina will provide a range of activities aimed at the younger generation and the young at heart, for example, canoe handling, dinghy sailing moving on to yachting. In short to provide a centre for learning seamanship and the disciplines involved under proper controlled supervision.

In an ideal world there might even be a place for something along the lines of a two masted sailing ship based here for training purposes

There is no doubting many possibilities, opportunities and challenges lie ahead. We believe all ideas are good ideas and welcome any suggestions that are put forward

Clubhouse/Heritage/Training Centre/Meeting Place

The Clubhouse would be multifunctional in its use, catering for harbour users and the local community. It would have toilets and basic catering facilities. It would house a permanent heritage display. It would serve as a classroom for training purposes. It will work in tandem with the Village Hall in event sharing. It would be a meeting place for anyone to just drop in. Due to it’s location on the Speyside Way it will receive casual visitors who shall be welcomed and impressed by what is happening.

Finally, it will be a fitting tribute to those with foresight to see the future, whose ideals are not of self interest but rather support a view to improving the village for all
