Fantastic news… Granton’s very own hand carved 9-meter-long Iron Age logboat ‘Dobhran’, will sail again. The relauched is tomorrow Sunday 11 Sept at Granton Harbour between 12.30 – 1pm. All welcome to watch, cheer and clap.
‘Dobhran’ got severely damaged as Storm Arwen washed into Granton Harbour way back in ancient times; November 2021. Volunteers from both The School of Ancient Crafts and Granton:Hub have worked hard… only taditional Iron Age skills & techniques have been used in the fixing of ‘Dobhran’ logboat, and, no seals were harmed in the sealant process. 🙂 The photo shown is taken at the launch in June 2021
