You paid extra if you couldn't fit through the Penny Gate

WE TOOK a ferry tour of the islands off Oban but unfortunately the fog rolled in and although the guide kept up his commentary,

"And if you look out the port - that's the left hand side for you landlubbers - you will see the house once owned by Oswald Mosley, leader of the English Fascist Party".

On Mull we saw the Penny Gate through which passengers once had to pass. If they could fit through with their bags they paid landing tax of 1d., but if they couldn't fit thought they had to pay 2d.!
