Yet another image from last year’s Scottish holiday…

Port William is a fishing village on the eastern shore of Luce Bay in Dumfries and Galloway, founded by Sir William Maxwell in 1770.

Gavin Maxwell, who wrote the book Ring of Bright Water (1960) about how he brought an otter back from Iraq and raised it in Scotland, was a decendant of Sir William and was born in 1914 in the nearby village of Elrig.
