Luba na Eisearan (Oyster Pool)
Luba na Eisearan (Oyster Pool)
The low walls in the bay were a failed attempt to cultivate native oysters in the early 20th century. According to John de Vere Loder in his book Colonsay and Oronsay in the Isles of Argyll published in 1935, "Attempts were made about 1910 to start an oyster bed at Luba na Eisearan (Oyster Pool, Garvard), but were defeated by the strength of the tides". It is interesting to realise how well the structures have survived despite the tidal strength. The Paps of Jura are visible on the skyline.
