NO4102 : Millstones in Lower Largo by Bill Kasman
These millstones in Seaton Place have an interesting history. In the early 1950s a caravan park occupied this site. These millstones (from a mill which was previously located here) were buried during the preparation of the caravan site and unearthed again when the caravan site was redeveloped for the building of Seatoun Place in 1982. They are 2.37m in diameter and 0.45m wide and now serve as a reminder of the areas' industrial heritage.

NO4202 : Mysterious white footprint! by Bill Kasman
White footprints like this one are a feature of Lower Largo. There are several scattered along Main Street and Temple and on rocks on the nearby shore. Some say they represent 'Man Friday's' footprint (Lower Largo was the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk on whom Daniel Defoe's book 'Robinson Crusoe' was based) and some say they simply represent the Fife Coastal Path, which passes this way, and, indeed they are also to be found outside the village on the route of the path.
