About Brownies TaingBrownies (Broonies) Taing Pier was opened on 19th August 1904. The Brownies Taing Pier Trust was established in 1976.
The old sheds and pier at Broonies Taing, on the south side of Sandwick, show what an important role the fishing industry played in the local community. In more recent times, the pier was used as an oil industry supply base.
The pier and the surrounding area is under-utilised at present, but offers opportunity for development.
