The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Scotland's Rig Yards
Ninian Central in build at Kishorn
My brother and I worked on this rig in 1975 onwards, we were both welders for a company called Fergus Hayes from Hampshire. We had some really good time at site, we lodged at a little village called Applecross and had to travel to site every morning over a single track road.
