Chartered project management surveyor Brenda Jones is the ports new developments manager. She has supervised many large construction projects included overseeing the Lews Castle redevelopment.


After two and a half years service, Tony Morrison has stepped down as harbourmaster.


The harbour board thanked him for his “commitment and contribution” to the authority and wished him well in his new venture.


The role of harbourmaster has been revised to “fulfil the demands of its 20-year masterplan” with plans to create the joint post of harbourmaster/operations manager.

Port chief executive, Alex Macleod, said: “We are moving into a period of significant change for Stornoway and the authority as these crucial developments take shape.


“As the port changes, so we must adapt at all levels to ensure each project is put in place to maximise the potential for the people who live and work here.”
