  • Abandoned


    These boats, sitting quietly on the shore at Salen, on the Isle of Mull, have become something of a tourist attraction. They are very picturesque. This shot was taken a few years ago, it would be good to go back one of these days and see how much they’ve changed.

  • Old Boat Detail
