A Well Traveled Message In A Bottle

nantucket_bottleA message in a bottle was found by Billy the Post on the beach on Tiree last week originating from ‘across the pond’ in the United States.

It was thrown overboard from a fishing vessel 30 miles east of the small island of Nantucket, Massachusetts on August 2nd 2005.

10 years on it washed up on the shores of Tiree still intact around 300 yards north of Traigh nan Gillean, Kenavara.

Famed for its picturesque scenery and fishing, Nantucket sits 30 miles south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts on the North Eastern coast of the United States. At 47.8 sq miles it’s around the same size as the Isle of Bute and with a population of just over 10,000.

A reply was sent via post earlier this week and we look forward to hearing back from the States with their reply.
