Waymarker on Berwickshire Coastal Path at Linkim Shore
Waymarker by artist, John Behm, installed from the sea in 2009 because of the difficulty of vehicular access to Linkim Shore. Funding was raised by the 125 Association, set up to mark the 125th anniversary of the 1881 fishing disaster in 2006.

"Linkim Shore mattered because it was once a fishing station," explained John. "Most of the locations have historical connections with fishing or are at fantastic moments in a dramatic coastline."

There is no vehicular access to the beach at Linkim Shore and after much discussion it was decided that the most practical way of getting the waymark, plus all the tools required to install it at its final destination, was by boat.
