Almost comically different sentiment to the ‘Please be courteous to coastal walkers. Do not play until walkers are safe/ aware.’ notice a few days back at Balcomie Link.


Frequent golf courses make for less carefree coast walking.

I’ll be needing earplugs to get any sleep on a stormy night like this.

Time for a nuclear brew.
Force 10/storm force wind forecast later tonight for my penultimate camp in Scotland before crossing the border. The strategy is to pitch in the lee of some cliffs, have a good feed and deploy the magic fairy lights!

    The pebbles are my fave of this set of photos. And I always enjoy the videos. Appreciate the inclusion of the golf course signs!

    • Beautiful colour and textures aren’t they. The Videos show a lot stills never can! I always find signs in Britain amusing.

    You know the castellated building at Dunbar harbour entrance was one of Ordnance Survey’s Mean Sea Level measuring stations?
