The 71m pontoon is enabling easy access to the centre, which is run by Buddhist monks

The interfaith centre on Holy Isle by Lamlash, Arran, has a new pontoon enabling all-tides vessel access.

The 71m pontoon was supplied by Argyll-based Fusion Marine in a project installation managed by Wallace Stone of Glasgow.

The pontoon has been welcomed by the Buddhist monks who run the Centre for World Peace and Health, ensuring easy access for the growing number of visitors to the Holy Isle.

The pontoon is manufactured from durable, corrosion-free polyethylene and recycled plastic.

Anchored to the shore by a concrete bridgehead, the pontoon slopes down the foreshore into the sea and rises and falls with the tide, providing 24-hour access and a safe and convenient mooring platform for small craft.

Holy Isle is located in the Firth of Clyde off the west coast of central Scotland, inside Lamlash Bay on the larger island of Arran.
