He had a couple of buckets in which he placed half a chicken in each as bait, he then lowered his buckets into the water, after about half an hour he raised the buckets which had about twenty to thirty crabs in each.
I’m presuming they were being caught for a local restaurant, the man didn’t speak much English but he indicated to me that this was not a great catch and that the crabs are usually a lot bigger.

Lying on the north shore of the Holy Loch is the small village of Kilmun; the pier was built by David Napier who was famous for constructing the boiler for the paddle steamer Comet.
The pier was built along with a hotel in 1827 for the purpose of transporting passengers to Inveraray.
Although the pier closed officially in 1971 it is still used by Western Ferries as an overnight berth for their ferries.
