Arnish Yard - success story
The Fabrication Yard at Arnish is non-operational at present, and no news has been forthcoming about its future. This post is about the Hebridean Seaweed company, which has been set up in a corner of the industrial compound that is the Arnish Yard.
Hebridean Seaweed processes locally harvested seaweed (available in large quantities from the shoreline) into a substitute for the much-maligned trans-fatty acids found in many of our foodstuffs.
The company is now working 24 hours a day, 6 days a week - except for Sundays, out of respect for the Sabbath observance in the island.
I'm not quite sure, but I would imagine that there is plenty of space available for other small businesses like that. It is a success story, and I am looking forward to hearing of many more.
