This contraption is on a Scottish island, near to a lighthouse. Opinion so far considers it may have been used as a fog gun, i.e. to signal to ships in foggy conditions. It may, of course, not be a gun at all, although it certainly looks like one. Can anyone shed any light on it? (Photo by Jamie Shorthouse)

Haven't heard about the Howitzer I'm afraid.

Picture taken two days ago, but not by me, so I haven't seen it myself.

It's on a private island, but recovering it might be an interesting exercise, however I'd need to speak to the owners first. Before I do it would be good to know exactly what it is, hence my query.
