|Apart from these old volcanic plugs, this is quite a flat plain - looking south-west |
from the top - note the characteristic red-brown earth that you get in this coastal area

View across the harbour towards the island of Craigleith, with the weekend dinghy boys
giving it their best shot. The villages on the Fife coast, right at the top, are Anstruther and
Pittenweem, though I can never remember which is which...

volcanic plug - looks a bit unreal here - the colour confirms that the gannets are
arriving for the Summer.
