Inchcolm Abbey cloisters
How should a nice sunny bank holiday trip to Inchcolm be best represented in a single photograph? Of course, the dingy, damp cloisters. But to be honest, up top it's pretty much like any other ruined building. Bits and bobs of building here and there with wee interpretation plaques to try to give you a clue what everything is.
It's a fine wee place and much to be recommended for a nice wee trip, especially if you fancy being dived at by an irate herring gull and near shat on for going near its nest. The underside of the Abbey is actually really nice and the gloom, combined with lots of wee wndows and doors creates interesting wee puddles of light, helped along nicely by the peeling walls. The island also has some fine views across the Forth to Embra.
And it only takes a morning so you can still spend the afternoon digging in the garden, working on the shed and realising that you still haven't bought enough boards. Doh.
