Wrecked fishing boat at Foulis Ferry, near Evanton

Foulis Ferry, near Evanton, Ross-shire. Now completely restored as a visitor centre and renamed 'Storehouse of Foulis', this 18th century grade A listed building used to store grain and was known as a 'Girnal' or 'Rent House'. Girnals used to be a familiar sight along the coasts of Easter Ross and Sutherland.

A ferry ran from Foulis to the parish of Resolis on the Black Isle. It was still active in the late 19th century

The wrecked fishing boat to the left of the building, is of a type known as 'Zulu'. It was wrecked at the time of World War I when many of the fishing crews were called up. After the war, either the fishermen didn't return or the 'Zulus' themselves had been superceded, or were beyond repair and were left to disintegrate.

The remains of at least two 'Zulus' can still be seen at Ardullie Point and there are some planks and fittings still lying on the foreshore at Foulis
