Hi, I live in the far North of Scotland and do a lot of beach cleaning.  During one clean my husband found a GoPro camera.  We cleaned it up and it works!  Looking at the files on the camera, I would say that it belonged to someone who was fishing.  I have some photos from it that have helped slightly in discovering the owner and someone actually pointed out that one of the cars in the photo was Irish.  So have you been sea fishing, from the shore, dropped a camera down on your line and lost it?  Or do you know anyone else who has?

Please let me know if so.

Thank you
Dorcas

There were so few pictures on it but I will share one or two that I took off of a video.  Most of the videos were of the weed or the camera was spinning around because it was on the end of the line.https://d2b4i25io5fq3v.cloudfront.net/02-08-2019/0cd6ce71-c5c2-41b7-a6ea-fc35.jpg

Thank you Elodie for your help.
I had thought it might be the Orkney Islands I was seeing in the background and that might make sense considering where we found the camera.
So if someone traveled to Orkney to fish, and lost their GoPro, I will ask them a question to see if it agrees with what we found.  :)
Good luck, it would be great to find the owner.
