Description:
Break in the rain and clouds to reveal the majestic Cuillin Hills, with the hapless Calypso fishing boat being stranded on the rocks after breaking from its moorings during the storm. Back story from a local newspaper, The Press and Journal, "Fishing vessel runs aground on Skye after breaking its mooring" www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/islands/1758311/fishing... Newspaper extract: "A spokesman said: “We received a call at 7.10pm from a concerned member of the public who spotted a boat that appeared to have broken its mooring or come off its anchor. The vessel washed up on a pebble shore... ...skipper of the Calypso, said: “I was totally shocked to see my boat away from her mooring. It’s not really something you expect to happen and to be honest I am pretty gutted. The coastguard team were top notch though. They really helped me out when I needed it. Unfortunately there appears to be quite a bit of damage to the underside, so, for the foreseeable, we will be working to get her back into shape so we can get back to doing our job.”"
