It was discovered by a dog walker on Poll Na Crann beach - known locally as Stinky Bay - near Griminish.

Stornoway Coastguard is using two numbers on the container to try to find out where the item has come from.

The beach is known as Stinky Bay because of the fermenting seaweed found there.

WTF is it? Looooooooooooooooooooooooooool! raftl

Come on roll up roll up, place your bets now, the running favourite is a belated xmas present from al quaeda.

wtf indeed.

Take some pictures of it then scrap it for a bit of moolar and laugh when the owner turns up. Or push it back into the sea and watch someone else try figure out what it is when it lands on newbrighton beach.
