Salt Island, Strangford Lough

Following our day on the island on 28 June, 2008, here are some more photographs:-


They show the rear of the bothy and a stone wall at the front. As I mentioned yesterday, we were endeavouring to piece together sections of the surrounding stone walls; it's like a jigsaw puzzle! If there are any experienced dry stone wall artisans reading this who'd like to join our volunteer group, I'm sure the National Trust would welcome you with open arms! It's not a huge task: there are mainly three walls and three stone pillars, one of which is intact; the two others require re-building.

Craig, the Strangford Lough warden, spotted recent traces of otter droppings at the remains of an old well on the western side of the island.
