Its a platform for wee frees at sea the rail at the front is the pulpit
The drums are full of petrol for fire and brimstone ( you will know all about it Harrisman)
The blue drum for babtisim
Maybee the creels are to do with Laviticus chapter 11.

Aye Robbie,

Thats an absolute cracker of a reply LOL, I was thinking more like somebodies floating gear store, just watch that somebody doesnt go belting past and the whole lot, ends up on the bottom of Loch Torridon LOL

Good one Robbie,
Lebhiticus caib X1, 17, agus an scarbh! Safe to assume these aren't scarf creels if the fundamentalists control the "boat".
How do people get through life without eating cormorants,-can't be worth living!

CED,

I am interested in your comments re, eating cormorants, surely not, I would have thought they would have been far too oily ???

Harrisman, am sure Robbies boat looks nothing like that overgrown Punt LOL I have to stick up for the Lossie Lads

You put them in the pan with the head over the side then just gently simmer for a few hours..... or days. The oil bubbles out of the nostrils. Mind to gut it first! Thats my man's Sutherland recipe, maybe the Western Islanders have something different. (LOL)

The Faeroese think that the puffin is a great delicacy. i found them a bit strong but to each their own. Growing up in Lossie we used to go up to the cliffs between Covesea Lighthouse and Hopeman for gulls eggs in the spring and I liked them a lot, a bit saltier than hens eggs but much bigger. When you got a double yolker it would fill the pan.

I just realised that i've given the Harrisman some ammunition to throw at Robbiedog the next time he mentions his quaint highland ways so sorry Robbie.LOL

I can see Robbie had his fill o them as a loon - judging by his shape !!!
That up there looks like the back of his van - think he rolled it a couple of times.
He could not hold the guga down and Mrs Campbell in Islay told him off for eating the non scaly fish - especially on the Sabbath !

A confession on line Blues the RSPB will be at yir door soon and the quaint old Harris man would be munching his way through any old bird he found by the road side ( road kill menue is part of his heritage ) I admire his culinary skills as he knows exactly what speed to drive from Loch-inver to Inverness with a dead gull strapped to his exhaust pipe wrapped in tin foil so the birdy is ready to eat when he gets home.
