Charlie, the Ancient Mariner on the CalMac ferry from Mull


Charlie, the Ancient Mariner. Wanders the streets of Oban mumbling in tongues. He was on the CalMac ferry back from Mull. Everyone shifted subtly away from him and I sat listening to his words cupping a hot chocolate. The only thing I could understand was” “I come from Iona”. I asked boat staff about this, but he didn’t seem convinced.

Charlie insisted on being the last person of the boat and was ordering me to leave.
