Down to Earth

We come back down to Earth from speculating on Comet Ison and look again at the rotting wooden structures that feature along our coasts. This photograph, by Mavis Gulliver, is of the remains of the pier between Ellenabeich, Isle of Seil, and Easdale. She draws attention to how the ruins still indicate what must have been an impressively-sized original structure.

It was also used by steamers on the Glasgow to Fort William route back when coastal settlements were hubs, not out on the rim.
