5th May

5th May

another off-island jaunt, this time to Portavadie.

Stopped off at Polphail, the ghost village just before the road down to the fancy new Marina.
Polphail was built in the 1970's as accommodation for 500 workers
at a nearby oil platform construction yard, the yard never went into production though
so all the buildings have layed empty ever since they were built. (Info Here)

I could of spent all day looking round there...

Interesting buildings even for the 70s!
