Early Bute Life

Standing stones in Bute

This is part of the stone circle near Ettrick Bay. I'm often drawn to take shots of them and this was taken with a pinhole camera. Quite fitting given the historical aspect but hardly in the same timescale.

Waverley

Waverley by butephotography.com

I was surprised to catch the Waverley leaving Rothesay pier last weekend. I didn't realise it was still running at this time of year, but good on it!

I actually heard it before I saw it!

Loch Fad - Pea Soup

Loch Fad - Isle of Bute

The edge of Loch Fad was a thick, greenish sludge, a bit like green paint or pea soup. I don't know if this was algae or something to do with the fish-farming in the middle.

The Old Port Pier

Old Port Bannatyne Pier

Now that the boat at Ettrick Bay has gone, I wonder how long before the old pier at the Port finally crumbles into the sea. It's a shame that nothing was done to preserve it in the first place and it's probably too far gone to do anything with now.
