taken 7 years ago, near to Aith, Shetland Islands, Great Britain

Aith: the lifeboat
Aith: the lifeboat
Aith's is the most northerly lifeboat station and was established in 1933 after it was decided that the western coast of Shetland needed its own, rather than have to rely on the Lerwick boat which had to circumnavigate the islands to reach this side.

This vessel, the Charles Lidbury, came into service in 1988.
