Argyll and Bute Council are responsible for the development and maintenance of infrastructure to support local ferry operations. They propose developing an overnight berth and the development of breakwaters to improve connectivity between the Isle of Mull and Isle of Iona. The ferry operating between the two islands is often hampered by adverse weather conditions, resulting in islanders being stranded.
