A small band of volunteers has been making inspiring progress at Culross harbour. For years they have been replacing stone blocks and concreting. The restoration of the pier is heavy work and a huge task so progress has unavoidably been slow. However more recently a rapid transformation has taken place with the construction of a wooden walkway from the shore out to the stone pier.

The walkway enables Culross sailing club members to reach their boats more easily and the improved access will facilitate further restoration of the pier.

Work has been carried out with funds raised locally and a grant from Fife Council. The pier takes the brunt of the prevailing south westerly and much remains to be done so naturally help and contributions are welcome. The team can be contacted through the Culross Pottery and Gallery and the Red Lion Inn. Donations for the pier can be made at both.

Why not make a trip to Culross to see the progress, visit The Pottery and Gallery and enjoy their delicious coffee and home baking or visit the Red Lion Inn for famous steaks. The historic Burgh of Culross has much of nautical interest including an impressive memorial to “Scotland’s Nelson” Lord Cochrane.
