Buth Bharraigh already provides a visitor information service including accommodation finder service and other services. This service helps boost the local economy and helps visitors to the island as well as local businesses. The Visitor Information Service, which has to date been mainly funded by the Bùth, needs support so that this vital service may continue.

To provide this support, the operation of the Castlebay Marina will now be fully managed through this service. Over the past few months there has been a revision of the Marina operation and there is a need for it to generate significantly more income. The staff skills, experience and contacts within the Visitor Information Service will immediately provide social media visibility, advertising, bookings & payment facilities for the operation with the added access hours while Buth is open during both during the season as well as out of season.

To celebrate this new partnership and while everything is getting up and running there will be a 20% discount for users to 30th April.

Both organisations are looking forward to working together in this partnership and also looking forward to a busy season on the Marina.
