Mainly about the wild flowers of Fife

The sea urchin

I’ve never walked south from Arbroath, so went for a short walk on my way home from Balgavies on Monday.

It was lovely – must go back and do a proper walk soon. On a day when there’s a better view…

Some of the highlights:

A wonderful sea urchin.

I’ve only ever found the smallest fragments of shell. It was amazing to find the whole creature. And so vividly coloured.


I left it there, but brought back a small fragment.

The pebbles were beautiful, and it was hard not to fill my pockets and bring them back too. I resisted this one.

Loved this one, which looked as if it had been dusted with gold.

There were some good dunes, but showing signs of erosion.

Didn’t walk as far as Easthaven – next time.
