Wheelhouse Rescued

SCOT II Wheelhouse being loaded for transportation.
The wheelhouse for the SCOT II is now back with the owners of the ship, it was rescued from the Muir of Ord in the Scottish Highlands just last week, and after a bit of a struggle it is now safe back in Fort Augustus close to the hull of the SCOT II.

The wheelhouse is still in pretty good condition considering it had been used as a hen house and for keeping sheep in. This is yet another testament to the workmanship of the men at the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb.

The wooden wheelhouse it is hoped can be restored and will sit proudly back on top of the superstructure of the old tug once restored.

You can see more photographs of the wheelhouse rescue here.
