Davie's Noost, Freyers, Foula
I am no great lover of public art, which normally desecrates the environment in my humble opinion, but I liked this as soon as I saw it, using stones from the local environment to produce the prow of a boat. The boat is also a seat, and there it is beside an old noost (a hollow in which a boat was drawn up when it was not in use). It is n appropriate memorial for Davie Gear, a Foula fisherman, who lost his life at sea, aged just 29.
