Welcome to Polphail.com

In the 1970s, in the frenzy of the North Sea Oil Boom, a peaceful, remote bay on the shores of Loch Fyne on the Cowal Peninsula became an memorial to the foolishness of government waste.

Polphail is just 4.5 miles from Tighnabruaich, the picturesque village on the shores of the Kyles of Bute.

The story of The Lost Village of Pollphail has been told by James Carron.

From Wikipedia: In 2009, Mills was among six urban artists (together with Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Juice 126 and Derm) who travelled to the west coast of Scotland to transform an abandoned village Polphail near Portavadie. Over four days the artists decorated the grey walls of the village. A short film, Ghost Village, was made documenting the project and was screened at the London Film Festival. In the same year his work was exhibited at the annual Art Basel exhibition in Miami Beach, Florida, where he has been invited back twice.
