MILLPORT FLOOD PROTECTION SCHEME
Mariners are advised that work to construct a new offshore breakwater in Millport Bay are planned from Monday 11th September until March 2024 as part of the Millport Flood Protection Scheme. The breakwater will be constructed between the small rock islands of The Leug, The Spoig and The Eileans as illustrated below.
