Anatole's blips

By anatolebeams

Lady of Avenel

Surprised to see a brigantine moored up in Inverness. Not just any brigantine but the ‘Lady of Avenel’. This boat is a favourite charter up this way, but the original was a brigantine with varied history that began with granite shipping from Cornwall, Naval training ship in Falmouth* and then an Arctic exploration ship.

* sold on when she was replaced by the Cutty Sark.
