Bright sunshine and a warm south westerly wind greeted me for this seasonal re-visit. Crowds of visitors were enjoying the beach and the scenic village backdrop. A high tide filled the small harbour, with boats bobbing at their moorings. This part of the East Neuk of Fife has history (Alexander Selkirk, who wrote Robinson Crusoe is commemorated here), charm and a fine strand of powdery sand. Highly recommended.

A warm, windy day at Lower Largo.
Lower Largo is a charming coastal village with a fine beach and a historical twist. The statue of Alexander Selkirk in the main street bears witness that it was his story that Daniel Defoe used for “Robinson Crusoe”. The village was traditionally the base for herring fishermen, then net makers, but is now a successful holiday destination. There’s a friendly, characterful ambiance about the village, welcoming and engaging to visitors.
