Photograph taken in the abandoned ghost village of Polphail. It was built during the early 1970s to provide accommodation for up to 500 workers at a nearby oil platform construction yard in Portavadie. The town was never occupied because the yard never went into production and now lies overgrown and falling apart. In October 2009, a group of six graffiti artists were granted permission to paint on walls within the derelict accommodation buildings of Polphail, prior to its imminent demolition.
