[BCK264 Sparkling Star III in Kinlochbervie]Friday dawned grey and wet as the tail-end effects of Hurricane Bill made it across the Atlantic but, as is so often the case, Kinlochbervie seems to have escaped the direst warnings of the weather forecasters so far.

There's quite a lot of activity in the harbour today with the freighter MV Fame delivering feed for the fishfarms in the area and the tanker Henty Pioneer delivering fuel oil to Loch Clash.

The fishing boats Loch Inchard II (UL44), Sparkling Star III (BCK264) and Enterprise (BF1) are also in the harbour, and it will be interesting to see whether any more arrive this afternoon to take shelter from the gales predicted for the weekend.
