"Old Herring Skiffs"

By RonnieAG
Old Herring Skiffs at Tarbert on Loch Fyne.........a century ago hundreds of these boats from the backbone of the west coast of Scotland's fishing fleet.
The photo was taken during a trip to Campbeltown last September.

My thanks to all who commented on The Birds.

that my award finger just could not resist!!!

I think Tarbert still gets a bustle on in Summer with the yachts coming through, that's one of my first memories of here when I arrived on a yacht.
A good chip shop and a couple of good pubs as I recall.
One of my colleagues was dispatched for a dozen rolls some salt and a copy of The Herald, he returned some time later minus the Herald, his excuse the bag was too heavy.

The letter box format suits this image particularly well, Ronnie.
Excellent definition and clarity.
Lovely reflections, too.
