The plastic bottle with an unusual crew!

Found on a remote beach on Mull - many Barnacles clinging to a plastic bottle, at low tide. Has it floated far?

2 for the price of one

Looking at the actual size you've actually got 2 species, one I'm pretty certain is common goose barnacle (probably young ones), & the other smaller ones with the ribbed sides I'm pretty certain are Lepas pectinata
