Inverness Harbour Trust has appointed two new trustees to the board that oversees the operation of the Port of Inverness. Catriona Maclean and David Taylor took up their positions recently.

Commenting on their appointment, Chairman Angus Mackenzie said, “I am delighted to welcome both Catriona and David onto the board.  Their skills will add considerable value to those already in place and will greatly assist the further development of the port going forward. Their appointment was carried out in accordance with the Guidelines set out by Transport Scotland.” 

Paying tribute to outgoing Vice-Chairman Chris Fraser, Angus continued,” I would also like to express thanks, on behalf of everyone associated with the port, to Chris, for his considerable input during his tenure which has greatly benefitted all associated with the port.”
