Why the Holy Loch?

The Holy Loch is the traditional dumping place for spoil dredged from the Clyde, the only exception I know of is when it’s used for infill.

I’m not certain but I believe that Steel Engineering of Renfrew are extending their Quay so as to move larger loads down the Cart ,of course it could be that the Cart is just being dredged for navigational purposes, the Scottish Parliament gave Steel Engineering a grant to dredge the River Cart.
