Struan is a small village situated on the western coast of the Isle of Skye, off the north west corner of Scotland. The name Struan is an anglicised version of the Scottish Gaelic name Struthan which can be translated as meaning ‘small stream’, or the flow at the point where a spring appears. This is likely to be a reference to the settlement’s location on the shore of Loch Beag, which is a small inlet of Loch Harport.
The population and economy of Struan
The village of Struan has a population of around 300 permanent residents; a community which is served by a small local grocery shop, four churches, a petrol station, an outdoor shop and a primary school. Much of the economic activity of Struan revolves around the tourist trade but there is still some evidence of more old fashioned income streams like fishing, crofting and agriculture.
In general, however, it is fair to say that Struan is as quiet and uneventful as you would expect of a 300 resident village in a semi-remote island. This may well make you think that you need not learn the basic details regarding personal injury compensation and solicitors in Struan, but don’t be too hasty in coming to that conclusion.
Personal injury compensation and solicitors in Struan
For personal injury solicitors in Struan, the area is indeed a fairly uncommon source of compensation claims due to the quiet nature of the settlement and the fact that not many accidents or injuries commonly occur there. This does not however mean that no claims could ever arise from the area, as residents of the village have the same entitlement to claim as anyone else in the UK.
It is for that reason that you may one day still be grateful for having read on and learnt when you may be able to claim compensation and who you can contact to receive the help of the very best solicitors in Struan or anywhere in Scotland.
When and why you may be able to claim
