Balmacqueen and Well Boat

This is a view from Kendram looking down to Balmacqueen. The boat in the background is the MV Inter Caledonia which is a Well Boat. These are vessels that service fish farms and transport the salmon in large wells in the boat, hence the name. This particular boat was built in 2015/16 in Turkey for a Norwegian firm and it is on a five year contract to Marine Harvest. Thanks to the AIS website I was able to find out that the vessel was heading south to the fish farm at Moll. Isn't the internet wonderful!
