The floating pontoon appears to be a recent addition as it isn't visible on aerial photographs on Google maps. This is an early evening view taking the air (which was building towards a force ten storm later in the night) before adjourning to the Pierhead restaurant, centre right of the photo. The red building in the centre is the Sail Loft, now a camping Böd. The apparently calm water shows how sheltered Olna Firth is - I was struggling to stand still in the wind to take this photo, and the waves in less sheltered spots were getting up towards four metres !
