The Talmine Reaper

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In the tiny Scotish seaside village of Talmine lies an old wreck. It was the 'Reaper'. Beached here in 1976 after being destroyed by fire in Loch Erribol A fine skeleton now, she was originally based in Scrabster and was a fishing boat built in 1948.

Nickolay, Bruce and Konstantin, happy to see you and your comments again. Yes, we were quite upset on hearing that it was not really a treasure ship :) Thanks for the awards too.

Cheers, Herb

Bach and Amelia, very nice to see you both here again. I guess for you Amelia this scene might well be in Norway too? Very happy that you both like this one.
