Artist's description:

This is one of three "shipwrecks", if you can call them such, to be seen in Carbost Bay, as you go towards Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye. They are wrecks even though they have not undergone any disaster such as a storm or enemy attack but rather they have just been abandoned here by their owner and left to decay, year after year a little bit more. It´s intriguing to think why these boats have been allowed to get into such a state of disrepair. With the ropes still attached and various tackle still inside, they seem to want to tell a story of the bygone days when they were still in service.
This is the smallest of the three wrecks, lying on its side with seaweed spilling out of it. It was important to me to portray it in the idyllic remote, highland setting with the Cuillin mountain range and old stone houses in the background. To me, the wreck symbolizes the history of the place, how times change and people move on but the place itself somehow still remains the same.
