Heatherbelle

80ft steel trawler "Heatherbelle" built 1989 by Miller of St. Monans, Fife. Originally named "Conquest" registered in Buckie, she was sold to Eyemouth owners and renamed "Heatherbelle IV", before beginning her Shetland career in Cullivoe, Yell as "Heatherbelle". Subsequently sold to Whalsay owners, before joining many other superb fishing vessels in the mass (and criminal, in my view) decommissioning scheme of the early 2000s. 24 x 18 inches oils on hardboard. Bought 2009 by a visitor
