The machair areas of the coastline are most at risk from erosion. Because of the soft sandy structure of the beaches, dunes and machair system, the area is easily eroded by wind, and considerable damage has been seen in the past during storm conditions. We can attempt to stabilise the most vulnerable areas of the coastal dune system, and are putting in place projects to try and do so.
