Practical Boat Owner - - Regional News -

A sur­vey is be­ing car­ried out at Holy Loch, Firth of Clyde, to iden­tify aban­doned moor­ings. Ev­ery li­censed moor­ing will be in­spected and is­sued a unique iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tag.

Un­li­censed moor­ings, where an owner can’t be iden­ti­fied, will be re­moved. The work is be­ing car­ried out by prop­erty agents Bid­wells on be­half of Crown Es­tate Scot­land.

Dr Dar­ren Hirst from Bid­wells said there is a high de­mand for moor­ings in the Clyde as it’s less ex­posed com­pared to other west coast lo­ca­tions.

“Many of Scot­land’s pop­u­lar moor­ing ar­eas are at ca­pac­ity, which makes this kind of ex­er­cise cru­cial,” he added.
