Very nice figurehead. I wonder if the HMS Bounty had this, she might still be afloat today. Beautiful capture.

Well known fact. Unicorns are the Loch Ness Monster's favorite food. Obviously this is the boat of a fisherman trolling for Nessie.

No it's actually naughty children... which judging by the way some of the visitors kids behave, it could prove to be more than useful.

The Unicorn has been used as the Scottish heraldic symbol since the 12th century. William I used an early form on the Scottish coat of arms. Scots have a strong sentimental streak under that practical and reserved exterior, and Scottish culture is rich in superstitions, myths and legends.
