Disappearing Piers

This man-made gorge gives a dramatic entry to Lochskipport, once a transport hub, on the east side of South Uist. It is now derelict, but yesterday's appeal for images of wooden piers has been answered. These photographs have come from a collection on a forum of UK Paddle Sports and there are three fine shots of the Lochskipport pier structures to be found on the Panoramio website provided by Reinder Herder.

Ahh this is one of our favourite Hebridean spots! I've written a number of blog posts since I started blogging onj the gradually changing appearance of loch Skipport pier - I'm sure we'll get there one day and it will have collapsed altogether.
