Subject notes
The boat is MV Darthula II which operated excursions on Loch Etive for tourists. Tourism has brought substantial income to the Highlands for the past two centuries. Cruachan pump-storage power station was one of the first in the world when it opened in 1966. It generates 400MW and the machinery is buried inside the mountain.
