Ninian pipeline landfall at Firth Ness

Uploader's Comments

The Ninian pipelines second landfall, having already crossed Lunna Ness a few miles to the east. This breakwater has been built to prevent erosion of the backfilled shoreline where the pipeline was pulled ashore into a prepared trench using two large winches.
