    Lochinver in 2008/9.  Then she was supposed to be goin down south for preservation but then went to SY. She just seems to get worse every time I see another pic. Crying shame and a world apart from her days as the proud Orcades BCK67.

    She came here for a survey as she was supposed to have been sold but i think the deal may have fell through and she was just abandonned, although whoever does own her now is still paying harbour dues for her and had the bottom recaulked last year.
    there was a blog for a while at http://mv-strathspey.blogspot.co.uk/

    What a bloomin shame, leaving that boat in a state like that, especially in lovely  Stornway, or any other harbour for  that matter, I well remember when she was the ORKADES in Mallaig in the early  80s when i was with Zander Forbes in the DEFIANT..

    the blog for the heroine in eyemouth seems to have stopped although the have done some amount of work and she is floating and converted shame when it happens but big pockets needed to refit ex mfv's
