Photographer's Note

This is an example of a "boat house" which is formed by four walls and an old boat as the roof. This one can be found at the car park for Calgary Bay on the Isle of Mull, Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Calgary on the Isle of Mull is thought to be the origin for the arguably more famous Calgary in Canada where the Winter Olympics were held in 1988.
"While there is some disagreement on the naming of the town, the Museum on the Isle of Mull explains that kald and gart are similar Norwegian words, meaning cold and garden, that were likely used when named by the Vikings who inhabited the Inner and Outer Hebrides." - Wikipedia

As can happen during our holiday to Scotland, there was a lot of rain with very flat light, so this shot needed a little post-processing in PS. Mainly contrast and levels.
