MEDIEVAL HARBOUR FOUND AT CAMBUSKENNETH ABBEY

Forth sailors may be interested in the attached cutting from The Times, Tuesday 9th September 2014.

A test pit has revealed a harbour wall.

Funding is being sought for a more detailed investigation next year.

The wall site is about 20 yards from the present river. This could mean there was a bit more to the harbour than simply a river wharf like Stirling town quay. Given the wealth of the Abbey and the high status of some of its visitors a more elaborate landing would seem a possiblity.


Lowland Canal Closure for Railway maintenance

Scottish Canals would like to remind you that Network Rail will be carrying out upgrading works to Carmuirs Tunnel beside The Falkirk Wheel. Therefore the canal will be closed at that point from Monday 20th October 2014 through to and including Friday 27th March 2015. A towpath diversion will be in place.

During this time, there will still be access from Grangemouth, up through the Wheel and onto the Union, however there will be no east to west transits possible.

Please bear this closure in mind and allow sufficient time if you need to arrange boat movements over the winter or are returning to your winter berth.

DUNBAR VISITORS BERTHING

Members may like to know that the visitors' berth is now on the east wall on the north side of the bridge. It dries approximately 2 hours each side of HW.

For most visitors this will mean berthing where one can and then moving to the visitors berth when water permits. The deepest water, the first berth one can reach on entry, is below the castle so this berth is busy.

It may be possible to make arrangements to berth temporarily below the castle to make an early departure to carry the flood tide up the Forth.

The new harbour master is Gary Lawson. Bob Clunas has retired.


GALLOWAY PIER (North Berwick)

From May to August the GALLOWAY PIER, the low water landing at North Berwick, is being extended and heightened.

The works should not greatly affect users in the harbour but skippers should be alert to commercial craft movements as the pier is close to the leading line. A jack up barge is in position.
