Plockton Workboat

Plockton is a well-favoured village way up on the north west coast of Scotland just above the Kyle of Lochalsh which seperates the Isle of Skye from the mainland. It benefits from a micro climate where tropical plants thrive in spite of latitude. This workboat lies abandoned on a well protected beach close by the pier, and was either a gentlemans yacht licenced for fishing (as told by the licence number) or a fishing boat converted to a yacht. She adds interest to the beach with her sense of history, and her scultural good-looks.
