Knee deep in the Big Muddy
Knee deep in the Big Muddy
Except for exceptional spring lows when the pipeline pops out, the navigation beacon at the end of an outfall pipe is all of this square visible above the sea. The OS suggest that a fragment of beach exists at low tide at NT290760. I visited the corner nearest land at the lowest tide of the month and was still knee deep in the murky Firth of Forth. Quite a bit of wading was required.
