Tannara Mor - 2

I love the old William Daniell prints. One of them from his book 'A Voyage Round Britain' depicts the pier on Tannara Mor as he saw it in 1815. In the second photo, even though it was a gray day, you can see the mountain Suilven, 12 miles away on the mainland. Compare its actual appearance to Daniell's depiction; it illustrates how he often exaggerated terrain for dramatic effect. You can see several examples of this here. The final photo is of a plaque that commemorates Fraser Darling's restoration of the pier in 1939.
