Moving back up a bit to Yellowcraig….

A wild night and quite blowy but with the exception of one shower it was dry with a fair bit of sunshine throughout the day – so all is good! Just a short journey for us, heading slightly north again for the last leg of this part of our Scottish journey – we will be back to enjoy the rest at some later date.

After setting up and settling in (cup of tea for me and lunch for Poppydog, we set off to explore and wow….

Look at this fabulous beach, right on our doorstep, literally 5 minutes down the lane from site.

A little on the busy side for us as it sits behind a biggish car park for Yellowcraig Country Park, but how beautiful and even so with the tide pretty much fully in.

In search of solitude we wandered along the beach to our left and round a rocky headland to this….

Another lovely sandy bay and yes we had it all to ourselves….

A fantastic Scots Pine backed sandy bay.

With views across to Fidra Island and it’s Lighthouse – I wonder if you can walk across at low tide? Time will tell.

It is a little chilly in the breeze but we enjoyed a good bit of beach time before wandering back to site.

Two thoughts of the day:

This might only be a relatively short stretch of coastline for us to cover during our three week stay here but it looks like we shall not be short of beach walks – all we need now is for the wind to drop and the sun to stay out!

If you have to live near a city then Edinburgh would be a pretty good place to be with all these beaches within a very short distance.
