A fully accessible toilet and changing facility is to be provided Ullapool Harbour.

 

A disused building will be extensively renovated following a £43,000 grant from the Scottish Governmen’s Ferries Accessibility Fund.

 

The money will help to revamp a disused building to provide changing, shower and toilet facilities for people with physical or mental disabilities, as well as for older people.

 

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: “We want our ferry and harbour operators to provide the best passenger experience possible and improving accessibility is a key area in that regard.

 

“This new facility at Ullapool Harbour will be a great example of what we’re trying to achieve with the Ferries Accessibility Fund.

 

“It will be available for everyone to use so hopefully it will benefit the wider community, not just ferry passengers.

 

Harbour master Kevin Peach said: “This is a fantastic Christmas present for the Ullapool community and I would like to thank the Scottish Government for their continuing support.

 

“This new facility will make a real difference for passengers with disabilities, as well as older travellers, and I look forward to the work getting underway.”
