Scoraig Pier

This photograph shows some men landing a small boat at Scoraig Pier. Scoraig Peninsula is part of the Dundonnel Estate in Wester Ross. The pier was built between 1900 and 1901, with funds made available through the Congested Districts (Scotland) Act of 1897. Before this time, access to Scoraig was only possible by the use of a very poor footpath. The funding allowed the Creag a' Chadha footpath to be improved and the building of a pier improved access by water. To this day, Scoraig is only accessible via a five mile footpath or by a short boat trip. It has a population of about 70 and a school that provides education for 3-14 year olds
