The Argyll and Bute Council is planning to demolish a small beach hut used by a group of surfers in Balevullin Beach, in the Isle of Tiree, Scotland.

The “Hawaii of the North” might only have a population of 650, but it is also home to an enthusiastic community of surfers.

When the surf’s up, they all gather around a small wooden beach hut (four meters by three) built by the local surf business Blackhouse Watersports. The tiny refuge provides shelter, storage, safety cover, and protects young surfers from the cold when they return from the waves.
