Some Local History
Dec 14, 2012

On the west coast of Scotland just south of where I live is an anchorage known as Puilldobhrain which translates from Gaelic as 'Pool of the Otter'. It is popular among cruising yachts during the summer months as it provides good shelter and easy access to a pub.

And here is the pub

The Tigh an Truish Inn dates back to the 18th century and its name translates as 'House of the Trousers'. After the Jacobite Rebellion in 1745 the wearing of the kilt,the traditional Highland dress, was banned by law. However the people in this area would change from the kilt into trousers at the Inn on their way to town and back into the kilt on their return. The pub is actually on an island separated from the mainland by a NARROW stretch of the Atlantic Ocean.

This is Clachan Bridge also known as the Bridge over the Atlantic,giving access to the mainland and attracting quite large numbers of tourists.
