I've actually seen this rusting rig from Edinburgh on clearer days, but when I was over at Burntisland last week I could take a closer picture as it is moored, rusting, in the Firth of Forth by the Fife coastline, and been there for a while. I don't know if it is being decommissioned (there are some small harbours and commercial marine companies nearby) or if it is just mothballed temporarily until the oil price goes back up (the huge drop has played havoc with the oil business in the North Sea, quite a lot of rig support vessels tied up for long periods in the harbours at the moment)
