    The harbour still sevices a few fishing boats, but now caters more for the growing leisure craft market.
    It was first built in the early 1700's and has been replaced and added to frequently over the years since.

    The Inn dates back over 200 years and is still very much in use as a modern day pub with all the facilities.
    A few years ago the colour was transformed from flaky white to a vivid blue

    The red Phone Box seen in Local Hero was a movie prop put up because the actual phone box was not in a good position for the cinematography. It's location was in someone's drying area near the harbour. However, many people make the journey to Pennan to have their photographs taken next to the actual phone box in the village. This is approx 20 yards away opposite a small, blue, badly worn, plaque commemorating the making of Local Hero.

    The narrow, winding street down the cliff to Pennan means that the big tour buses can't get there -- so either a minivan or car is the way to get here.
    .
    Pennan's location has saved it from complete tourist innundation, but also limited the economy.
