Information on the village of Bunessan in Scotland.
The pier was constructed from the local granite in 1846, and was known as "The Maize Pier", as much of the work on the pier was done by local men who had to work there in return for the emergency food supplies given after the potato famines of previous years. Those unable or not willing to work joined the emigrants from the area.
Today the pier is used by the local fishing vessels all the year round, and by visiting yachts during the summer months.
