Comments:
I think Iain is correct with 2001. This temporary link span was borrowed, or maybe even hired, from Invergordon, and is the landing the MV Contender used when she provided an excellent daily service between Invergordon and Kirkwall.

Year was actually 2002 from about July onwards. The crane barge in the background was fitting the new linkspan which was probably about the end of August.
