Auchenlarie beach
Looking SE along the coast from Auchenlarie towards the entrance to Fleet Bay. The small beach and inlet here, typical of this stretch of coastline, made this area popular with smugglers in the 18th century.Walter Scott's character Dirk Hatteraick is based on the real life smuggler Captain Yawkins who had a storage cave in the cliff face just below the point where this photograph was taken.
