Highland Road Salt

Highland road salt is brought in via Kishorn Port and Dry Dock

In 2011, Ferguson Transport & Shipping, one of KPL’s partners, secured an agreement with Highland Council to berth, discharge and transport all the road salt required locally in the area through Kishorn Port to the local depots in and around Wester Ross for use during the winter months. The salt was brought in by vessels and discharged in a matter of hours by the on-site port dock handling equipment and then delivered to local stockpiles.

  • salt is transported in by vessels
  • discharged in a matter of hours utilising the on-site port dock handling equipment
  • prepared for onward distribution to local stockpiles

This successful ongoing partnership operates on an annual basis.
