As part of ‘The Big Crit’ held at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and the Built Environment, final year student, Cian O’Riordan, showcased his plans to regenerate Buckie harbour to a high-profile industry panel.

Big CritCian proposed re-using the existing industrial structures of the harbour to become symbols of regeneration, and accommodate the harbourmaster's office and a digital media gallery.

Cian explained, "I would hope the development would act as a catalyst for the revival of the harbour and encourage future growth and activity, making the harbour an asset to the town once again."

Cian worked with Bruce Newlands, a former Buckie High student and tutor at the University, at various stages of this project and hopes to have the opportunity to apply some of his work to the town.
