Coastal Access Project Commission


Roots have been commissioned by Tiree Rural Development (TRD) to help visualise their coastal access project.

For many years Tiree has welcomed visitors staying in the wide range of accommodation available on the island. In recent years, owing to its increased popularity and the introduction of larger car passenger ferries, the number of people arriving in motorised transport including campervans and motor homes has increased greatly. This has put a strain on the sensitive habitats that make Tiree the sought after holiday destination that it is, namely its beaches and machair. The problems created are mostly ones of erosion, loss of habitat and disturbance to wildlife and livestock, which was leading to the threat of new fencing to restrict access to some of the most popular beaches.

TRD have been looking at ways to address these issues. As part of the ongoing work, a public consultation has been commissioned to ascertain people’s views on the suggested proposals for the sensitive upgrading. Roots have been asked to graphically present the suggested proposals to help inform the discussion amongst the community.
