Not much has changed here since Bob Jones submitted the first geograph in 2004 NG2149 : Colbost Jetty, Skye. The most obvious difference is the absence of the tall-masted yacht which featured in many views of the square until the winter of 2011, when she was torn from her moorings in a storm and smashed on the rocks. The fish farm cage off the Eilean Dubh has been moved a short distance down the loch, and the fence at the right has been renewed. The lower tide reveals the broken end of the jetty (damaged in another storm), and the slightly less misty conditions allow a glimpse of distant Cuillin peaks on the far right horizon.
