I came across this wreck of an old Scottish Fishing Boat….or if I understand the story correctly, its not a wreck but an abandoned boat that has now misplaced its owner. It is on the shore of Caol Beach, beside Corpach at the northern end of Loch Linnhe, which lies within the shadow of Ben Nevis.
This period between Christmas and New Year, when there are periods of quite time, and particularly if the weather is inclement, I use to have a good tidy up, a clear out. Not a full blown Spring Clean but just getting rid of that clutter that you accumulate during the year, things saved for another day but never used.
As for the boat, I still find it sad that something that once would seem very much alive should be left to rot down to its skeleton…. seems a waste.
Now back to the task in hand…. the clear out 🙂
