Very sad end to a ship that served the South Isles for many years. Brings back memories. Worked on there before leaving school to pursue a career in the Merchant Navy

Were the swans providing a Swan Song for the poor old boat ?

There is a white goose stays with the flock of swans at the Hoy Head, the swans must have adopted her, and been with them for years..

[Is the Hoy Head still there, like that? How about an update picture - Steven]
