Shorefront Project

Through the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund, the Scottish Government is making money available to communities for the benefit of both local residents and visitors. Highland Council are sponsoring an application by Arisaig for money to improve the appearance and the facilities in the shorefront area between the Land, Sea and Islands Centre (LSIC) and to just past the War Memorial.

The Proposal
The Brief we have given our landscape designer covers the following:

  • Modify the layout of the main car park opposite the Spar to both increase capacity and improve its
  • Provide a store for the large wheeled bins currently in the car park
  • Design a seating area close to the bus shelter
  • Design an accessible path from the car park, along the shorefront to the LSIC
  • Allow for interpretive and directional signage
  • Allow space for a bike shed
  • Allow space for large vehicle parking
  • Improve resident parking
  • Make provision for a permanent village Christmas tree

We have received three outline proposals based on the brief, these can be viewed or downloaded here

What We Want
We are inviting all residents to provide us with feedback on whether or not you support the project and if
you do, which of the designs you prefer.  Not all the proposals cover all of the points.  Copies of the 3 plans are also displayed on the village noticeboard outside the Old Library, in the window of the LSIC and in the bus stop opposite the Spar.

If you like one option with elements from another one then please say so. We will aggregate the responses to feedback to the designer to produce a final design which will hopefully include at least some elements that most of you like.
