HC Deb 30 April 1901 vol 93 c267

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Secretary for Scotland is aware that in the winter months is sometimes happens that the mails cannot be landed at Glenelg, Inverness-shire, owing to its being impracticable to send out a boat to meet the mail steamer in stormy weather; and can he ascertain whether a site for a pier at Glenelg was surveyed some years ago, and an estimate of cost obtained, and, in view of the proposed mail steamer service from Mallaig, will the Congested Districts Board consider the expediency of arranging for the construction of the proposed pier.


I am informed by the Congested Districts Board that in January, 1898, Mr. Baillie sent an application from the inhabitants of Glenelg for a pier. The usual schedule as regards the estimated cost was forwarded to him by the Board, but no reply has ever been received.
