Wow - That Was Some Wave!

This is the 'shelter' at Ardnamurchan Point, just below the lighthouse.  

Except it's not much of a shelter any more.  

Vandals did not venture to the most westerly point in the British mainland and do this damage.  

The extensive remodelling is courtesy of the storms we had last December.

There were two particularly ferocious series of blasts and here, on this exposed headland, the wind, sea and the debris they carried had an explosive impact on this little building.

Oh if you're wondering, the huge red cone on the roof is the old fog horn.  If you go there, take a look the the compressors which used to drive this thing.  Then cilimb the lighthouse where you'll find one of the last lighthouse keepers called Ian who gives a fascinating tour.
