I have seen a boat like this filled with soil and planted up in a small village on the east coast of scotland it looked really nice, but I would only do that if the boat was past its best. unfortunately I cant remember the name of the village

There are some pictures on GoY of boats filled with compost and planted up... and of old boats set into "seaside gardens"...

I might keep my eyes out for one to use as a planter, but it would need to be fibreglass as the wooden ones would rot too quickly

Good idea... they make a lovely feature in seaside style gardens with pebbles etc... If I come across any old boats in gardens on GoY, I'll come back here and put a ref. on for you ...

Do you fish in it.

yes sixpence I have two boats. I put them on my two favourite fishing lochs throughout the trout season, but with the winters here I find it better to bring them home . at the lochs they would get swamped and possibly damaged during our worst gales. it also gioves me a chance to do any maintenance on them

Is your island being use for the salmon farming, as I watched a program and they are starting to vastly use the islands for salmon farming which a lot of locals object to.

10 Dec, 2010


there are a number of salmon farms here, some are experimenting with seatrout and one has been raising halibut

Will this effect you in any way.

11 Dec, 2010


no the fish farms are a fair distance from the seashore. they are basically cages made from nets.

Thats good then does nt interfere with your own fishing

12 Dec, 2010


no I go trout fishing in the lochs, a bit of shore fishing in the sdeas, and the sea angling club here has it's own boat so i do deep sea fishing with them.needless to say my dogs get a fair bit of fish in thier diet. of course they really enjoy it

Sounds enjoyable and will benifit the dogs especially the oil from the fish with their coats.
