Beach combing at Marwick Bay

Although it was very windy the sun was shining so we decided to go and do a bit of beach combing. Marwick Bay is close to us and just along the shore from the carpark there are the fisherman huts which are beautiful. Built out on the rock face of the cliffs at Sand Geo using nearby stone, including rounded beach stone they are lovely buildings, which were restored in 1984. They were originally built between 1898 & 1913 to store boats & equipment for the old fisherman of the parish.

 

The recent stormy weather had brought up a lot of new shells, wood and seaweed, but we didn’t find too many goodies. However this was not an issue as it was just fantastic down there and we spent a good couple of hours enjoying watching the sea before the ever shortening days forced us to return to the car.
