Beach cleaners in Tobermory filled a large skip with rubbish in just one day with their haul including a car engine.
The clean-up was organised by Tobermory Beach Association and supported by MacGochans, Seachange Wines and Inverarity Morton Spirits.
A good turnout of residents helped, assisted by younger family members.
At a feast in MacGochans at the end of the day, prizes were awarded including rewards for the two most interesting items collected – an old coin and a fully working diver’s watch.
‘We were all pondering the poor boatsman who watched that slowly disappear below the waves,’ said Duncan Swinbanks of The Tobermory Beach Association.
