Washed up on the shore between McArthur’s Head and Proaig, Isle of Islay

Picture of a broken water level board washed up on a remote shoreI’m not sure what this once was, I’m guessing some kind of tide or water level indicator. We found it while walking at the bottom of the cliffs between McArthur’s Head and Proaig in the south east of Islay in April 2009.

  1. I’d say it’s a level indicator, the kind usually found in rivers or lochs. I’ve seen a few of them around the country. They were very common at fords all over the British Isles.
    My guess would be that it had washed downstream in a spate and found it’s way across the sea.
