Winter Talk: Wednesday, 8th November.

We had a full house for the walk “Along the Fife Coast” with Hamish Brown, a local man of great renown, as explorer in many continents, mountaineer of many heights and writer of such exploits.

It was very leisured for the audience, viewing “shots” from the Queensferry Rail Bridge in all its wonder through to Dysart and its history and relevance today.

We just sat back and within the hour had covered the ground effortlessly: Inverkeithing - Aberdour - Burntisland -    Kinghorn - Kirkcaldy no, not the rail journey, but a visit to seashore and buildings  with history  to boot !    

We were not even half way along the coast when time was up.

We hope to continue  and finish the “Bridge to Bridge” walk another day.

 Interestingly, we have in our Galleries over twenty paintings of places “along the coast”.They range from “Inverkeithing Paper Mill” by David Cook 20c to “Morning at Newburgh on Tay” by William Proudfoot 19c.

A sheet of information was made available.
