About AcarsaidAcarsaid has become a key base since the opening of the Eriskay Causeway for the under-12 metre vessels operating around South Uist. The current small pier is unsuitable for smaller vessels and the access road and back-up facilities are extremely poor.
An improvement project funded jointly by the Scottish Executive and the European Union will provide pontoon berthing, a new access road and a back-up area for gear storage and parking.
