About Applecross

A 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.
