About ApplecrossA new slipway was completed in 2001 at a cost of £250,000, providing an all-tide landing facility for local fishing boats and leisure craft.
The project was achieved thanks to a funding package of £120,000 from Ross and Cromarty Enterprise (RACE), £10,000 from The Highland Council and £130,000 from the European-funded PESCA fisheries programme. The Applecross Trust also demonstrated its enthusiastic backing for the project by providing the land for the development at a 'peppercorn' rent.
