Cove Harbour

We had a visit to Cove Harbour a wee while back. It is just down the coast from Edinburgh, between Dunbar and Eyemouth, near Cockburnspath. It is a favourite location for photographers and artists, but one that we hadn’t visited before, which is surprising given it is only a drive of about an hour so from the city.

We parked in Cove, at the top of the cliff, and then did the loop walk down to the harbour, up along the cliffs and then back around along the quiet road that goes to Pease Bay.

And so to some photos. We start with a view of Cove Bay and then the tunnel that is cut through the cliff to allow entry to the eastern side of the harbour.

We then went back through the tunnel to have a look at the western side of the harbour.

And then a walk back up to the clifftop to walk along towards Pease Bay. Here you can see the view looking westwards, showing the rocky nature of the coast surrounding the harbour.

Finally, a ruined cottage at the turning point back towards Cove.

Bloody St Andrews and The East Neuk.

St Andrews is mostly known for golf, but if you ignore that, there’s a whole collection of historical anecdotes about various bloody deeds.

It is on the north-eastern tip of the Kingdom of Fife, looking out onto the North Sea, meaning that it is generally susceptible to cold onshore winds.

If you are looking for an interesting place to do photography, I’d recommend a trip. We also went down to the ‘East Neuk‘, which is the name given top the small set of fishing villages (Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans [or Monance] and Elie) running along the south-east coast of Fife at the entrance to the Firth of Forth, with views across to The Isle of May and Edinburgh.

Anyway, we were lucky to be given somewhere to stay for the weekend right in the centre of St Andrews so, naturally, I took some shots. I’ve posted more than I normally would as I promised to share a decent selection to those kind enough to let us stay there.
