Portknockie harbour works completed

Press release   •   Nov 11, 2016 11:43 GMT

Major repair work has been completed at one of Moray’s most popular leisure harbours.

The £560,000 investment at the Moray Council-owned harbour at Portknockie has seen repairs carried out on the piers and jetties.

The harbour dates from the late 19th century and was originally home to a thriving fishing fleet but in more recent times has served as a haven for pleasure craft.

Local councillor Ron Shepherd said the work would help secure the future of the harbour.

“It is a well-used harbour both by local boat owners and visitors and I am delighted that these improvement works have been completed before winter sets in,” he said.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
