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.

A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (2 of 2)

Following on from our post on the Burghead Harbour area, here are some shots from our wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn.

There’s an extensive beach that starts just next to the harbour area, with easy access.

Along the beach are old Second World War fortifications, primarily tank traps and pill boxes (bunkers), the majority of which lean at a range of angles due their sandy foundations.

Set back from the beach on part of the range of dunes are some hardy trees that stand up to the North Sea wind blowing across them.

A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (1 of 2)

We were back again at the excellent Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, an ideal location for discovering the Inverness, Moray and Speyside areas (and beyond).

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

After a chat with our hosts about what they would recommend, we consulted the ‘walkers bible’ the Walk Highlands website,  and decided to go to Burghead for a look around, then have a wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn, leaving options for a further extended walk or a small trip elsewhere.

This post focuses on the harbour area, with another one on Burghead Beach – you can tell, we do like a nice beach.

The harbour is clearly used by fishermen so lots of fishing paraphernalia – piles of nets for instance.

This is not a fisherman but a young model in a photo-shoot posing as a fisherman – fairly convincing I guess.

There were many cormorants in and around the harbour – this one is about to take flight.

There was also a friendly harbour seal popping up out of the water.

We then headed up to the cliffs at the edge of town to get a better view.

And then back down down and along to the end of the breakwater for a closer look at the cormorants and the small tower at the entrance on this side of the harbour.

On to the next post on Burghead Beach.

Beauly River #Walk #Inverness #Highlands #Scotland #Photo www.henni.photo #Beauly

Post by Paul and Lynn Henni

A Walk Beside The River Beauly, near Inverness, plus an amble along Nairn Beach.

We used the Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, as our base for the Beauly River walk with our hosts. It is on the Walk Highlands website, as the River Beauly and Lovat Bridge circuit walk and is a nice moderate length for some gentle exercise to help justify some nice food and drink later. We also had an amble along the beach at Nairn.

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

A quick note for photographers – if you go to do this walk, you will be near Fffordes Photographic, a place with a good reputation. We didn’t have time to visit when we were there, so can’t describe it more than that (yet).

And so to the images. Firstly, a mix of natural and man-made with this pylon part of the transmission network from the hydro-electric plant nearby.

And here’s Beaufort Castle, on the River Beauly, emerging from the trees. Former home of Lord Lovat of WW2 Commando fame.

On the Campus, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh.

A selection of images taken around the Heriot-Watt Campus, taken on a #Fujifilm #XPRO-2 or #XE-2.

The campus is on the site of the old Riccarton estate, so has some good mature trees, interesting paths and is worth exploring.

Firstly, a mix of some of the paths.
