That lovely JCB which must have cost thousands and the blasted driver can't be bothered to wipe his feet before he gets back into the cab.

I'm wondering if they've got the plans upside down.

Seems to be going backwards - the project, not the digger

Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

Yikes, what a mess! I take it that's the little formal garden area in front of Lena Zaferelli's chip shop?

WTF are they doing to the place? I hope they haven't damaged the Victorian Gent's. Used to keep Arghiro against the central jetty bit of the harbour. First task on getting aboard was to fill a bin liner with all the cans, fag packets & chip papers chucked into the cockpit by the Glasgae trippers.

I've never been to Rothsay, inner or outer harbours, the Admiral always warned me off, somat about wash from ferries.

3 questions:

Is the JCB below sea level?

Can Rothsay harbour be spoilt?

Have they managed to do it?
Seminole.

I've sort of lost my bearings a bit since it's at least a couple of years since I've been there.

Is this the bit that used to have the pontoons in it that you approached to the left end of the peir?

If it is, it's about time something was done with it!

Interesting pictures, but

I'm sure I'm missing something.

I've never been there

Maybe its just my old fashioned notions

But if thats a harbour, should'nt there be some water involved in it somewhere.

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious.

According to PBO which arrived today "Work is running more than a year behind schedule ... it will now not be finished before September."
Best leave it until 2009.

Ahhh, I see it all now. I presume the stonking great ramp is how they get their toys down there.

I presume they have piled sheet steel across the entrance to keep the Oggin out. Used to be a lovely spot, very 1950's right to the end of the century.

Ah, so, perhaps, you have visited the errmm gents' on the pier; a rather fine example of Victorian (or poss Edwardian) alignment with cleanliness and devotion to idealism in the realm of the the lavvy. Well worth a visit imho.
