Rain at St Andrews Beach

Rain at St Andrews Beach

It started raining hard early Friday evening and continued all night. It was still pouring when we left the campsite. Stopping at St Andrews beach it continued to pour down.

We decided to follow the coast and return to our campsite by then going inland doing a large circular day out. The coastal villages reminded us of Yorkshire seaside villages around Staiths. The building styles and use of and the style of red roof tiles.

We also went to Scotland’s secret bunker. A 100ft below ground level under a ordinary farmhouse was build a 24,000 square feet Government command centre to be used following a nuclear attack. Only decommissioned in 1992..

On leaving the bunker the weather was drying up. Heading for a close look at the Forth rail bridge and the construction of the new road crossing. Before heading back we sneaked a quick look of Britain’s new aircraft carrier under construction at Rosyth.
