The Turbine components/cranes will be arriving on a special sailing from Oban today (Saturday 7th November) . The loading will begin at Oban between 2-4pm and the expected arrival in Tiree will be around 9pm. Once the ferry has docked all the components/cranes etc will be off loaded and will lie down at the pier area overnight.

On Sunday morning first light (8am) they will be loading the crane onto the extendable trailer at the parking place outside the post office. During this time diversions will be put in place: you will be asked to go down passed the Scarinish hotel if you are heading either West or East, but if you are going to the Co Op or live in the area you will still be able to go through.

Once the trailer is loaded it will then start its journey under police escort to the Ruaig site, around 11-11.30 approx. During this time traffic will be slow moving on the B8068 Scarinish to Gott & the B8069 Gott to Caoles, so if you are heading out to Church/work or anywhere else along this route please give yourself some extra time.

All the local emergency services and the doctor have been made aware of any potential delay.
