I have posted before on Canna's red phone box, once a communications oasis in a large area of the Hebrides with no mobile phone coverage (see this link). On many occasions it was the only place I could call home during a Hebridean cruise.

It was not only myself that found the phone useful. In 2009 a 100+ million dollar business deal was concluded here (see this link).
Sadly, the phone, installed in 1955, was not destined to reach its 60th birthday. On a visit to Canna last month I found the box to be derelict and rusting away. What was once an iconic site in the isles will soon look like the moldering boxes on Scarp and Soay.
