Viewpoint and seating, Kyleakin
Viewpoint and seating, Kyleakin
This small seating area on the shore of Kyle Akin with a view to the Skye Bridge looks to be seldom visited. The telescope didn't work. The concrete seats have been set with ceramic tiles decorated by members of the Kyleakin Day Centre, which is a centre for adults with learning disabilities.
I believe natural weathering rather than vandalism has damaged or destroyed some of these tiles. The surviving ones are photographed here:
