NO4102 : View across Lower Largo harbour by Bill Kasman
The mouth of the Keil Burn serves as Lower Largo's harbour. The grassy area is a public space which has several bench seats in place and is a lovely spot to sit on a warm, sunny day. The building to its left is 'The Net House' (not to be confused with 'Cardy Net House' NO4202 : Cardy Net House, Lower Largo) which is now self-catering holiday accommodation but was previously a fishing net repair and drying shed NO4102 : The Old Net House, Drummochy Road.

NO4102 : It's not completely dead! by Bill Kasman
In Main Street Lower Largo I spotted these lobster creels. Not just for decoration they are a sign that, although most commercial fishing died out in the village some years ago, there are a small number of local fishermen who are still active, mainly for their own pot, but who will occasionally supply local hotels, etc., with seafood.

NO4202 : What's this? by Bill Kasman
It's a bit of a puzzle, that's what it is! Resembling a market cross this curiosity is right in front of the entrance to Cardy House (on the left) NO4202 : Main Street, Lower Largo It's obviously intended to mark something - but what?

NO4102 : Burnbrae Terrace, Lower Largo by Bill Kasman
This is the only vehicular access to Burnbrae Terrace. How residents further up the brae take delivery of heavy items of furniture and how the local authority collect refuse is a mystery to me since it's only wide enough for an ordinary car - no lorry or delivery van could get through here!

NO4102 : Drum Park, Lower Largo by Bill Kasman
This part of Drum Park was previously the slipway down to the sea next to the former salt girnel ('girnel' or 'girnal' is an old Scots word for a storage area for perishables). At one time salt (and other commodities) from Lower Largo were shipped to Dundee, Perth and the Netherlands and this would have been a very busy place. It still gives access to the beach but only for the nimble since a steep rocky slab must be negotiated! This is also the location of the footpath past The Net House which is the low building in the middle of the frame NO4102 : Path past The Net House, Lower Largo
