Seats of Seas Past

Oak seats shaped like boats could be found over looking the River Nith, at Glencaple, Dumfries and Galloway.  Created some years ago they were already aged and weathered when I last saw them.

They had been inlaid with names and dates commemorating local shipbuilding, travel and trade: a reminder of the rich heritage which relates to historic seascapes.

The landscape here is also marked by another dynamic, with the occurrence of a tidal bore up the River Nith.  I hope the seats, a perfect spot to watch the bore, are still there…?
