The Crown Estate believes that community-driven development will be key to the success of Scotland’s marine tourism action plan. The plan, being launched today by the Marine Tourism Development Group, has the aim of boosting the economic value of marine tourism in Scotland from £360 million to £450 million a year by 2020.
As one of the partners in the plan’s development we believe that the commitment and capability of coastal communities will be central to the plan’s success. This is based on our experience of developing ‘Local Management Agreements’ around Scotland’s coast.

Reinstatement works to the East Pier of Portgordon Harbour in Moray are underway. The completion date is likely to be early February 2015, allowing for the workers’ festive break and dependent on weather conditions. We will continue to keep the community informed of any further developments regarding the future of the harbour.
