Fish Farm Pen Adrift

Kilchoan Early Bird took this picture of a fish farm pen adrift just to the north of Ardnamurchan Point lighthouse earlier this evening. He says it was being towed by the Coastal Hunter and adds, "I don't know if the tide got the better of them or the tow snapped, but now it's back at Muck some two miles from were it was."

That something has gone wrong is evident from Coastal Hunter's track - this is from VesselFinder.

Conditions aren't bad at the moment - the immediate forecast at the Point is for light winds from the southwest, but earlier the weather was rather worse.

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for picture and story.
