Mystery Place!

No mystery for some here. Came across this unusual picture a few times in the RIBnet gallery's, but cannot figure out where it is. Somewhere between Kerrera and Scarba?
Must be a bit of a story about the place?,someone put a fare amount of work into it a long time ago for some reason?.
Lot of this type of thing down in the Med, but rare this far north...........

Ach, I was distracted - donegaldan was kickin' me shin going "slow down slow down, you've got passengers!"

And I wasn't racing Sula, I was just under Strict Orders from HQ to Make our Presence Felt in the North.

Orders is orders!

Aye, IIRC he was no shy of the counter. It's an important skill and often overlooked. Every crew needs a man who can hold his own at the Bar. Too often a crew can fade under the strain of repeated splashes of beer and whisky. Rounds can be missed under these conditions and the next thing you know, you're loosing the argument with some posers in a XXX-XXXXX. No Fear!
