The poles are to hang nets for drying. Salmon swim down the coast and traditionally fishermen would run out their nets to catch some of them in passing. The last of the old fishermen employing this method retired some years ago but the cottage (bothy) that they used remains as a little museum.
I was careful in the composition of this shot to include the poles, without them the photo would be lacking. Shot intially in colour, for some reason this works much better in b/w.
