PLANS have been drawn up to transform Wick Harbour in a potential £100 million development which port chiefs say could "change the face of Caithness forever."

Wick Harbour Authority (WHA) has released images of its plans to create a new quay which would allow for offshore decommissioning work to be carried out at the port.

It is part of ambitious plans WHA has created to prepare Caithness for life after Dounreay and take advantage of the offshore and renewable energy opportunities which it is determined Wick has a prime position to play a part in.

WHA has spent £85,000 on designs for the future of the harbour as a result of the amount of interest they are receiving from companies in the energy sector.
