The clocks went back earlier this morning and more hours of darkness will feature in our lives until next February. This photograph of the old boats on Salen Bay, Mull, serves as a reminder of the changing times and tides. It was taken by Andrew Pennill whose images form a fine gallery. Older residents of the village of Salen, mid-way between Craignure and Tobermory, recall the mailboat service from Oban to Mull when the Lochinver called at the pier. This ceased in 1964 when larger boats came onto the route and were unable to use the facilities.
