I see her every day lying there, and its only owing to being derelict and the harbour authorit, not wanting to spend money that cannot be recovered that she has lain for about 9 months like this.. there is a massive luxury housing development due to start soon along the side o the river near her.. bet they get her moved PDQ..Sorry this has nothing to do wi Orkney, but I am orcadian, and so was the Hoy Head, will keep posted on her future.....or fate.
