NT3174 : End of the groyne, Portobello

near to Portobello, Edinburgh, Great Britain

End of the groyne, Portobello.
End of the groyne, Portobello.
The OS suggest that this square extends beyond the high water mark. A visit with a GPS suggests it's a low water job, but probably not restricted to spring tides. This was taken nearly an hour after low water. The groynes, protecting the sands from coastal erosion are now marked as a hazard to navigation.
