Old barge on Swona

Lindsay writes:
'The old barge is in a poorer state [than The Hood, the main transport to the island, rotting elsewhere] at the top of 'The Haven' You can see where the feral cattle have been rubbing against the bow. This vessel was used mainly to transport their ancestors to and from the isle.'
