a coastal harbour town in scotland

Poetry, scotland

moonlit boat, anstruther

lined up boats, anstruther

Fishing boats in wait,
Metal clangs, a seagull calls,
But otherwise still,

Fishermen resting
In cottages, a respite,
From the cold hard seas,

Wire mesh, wooden slats,
Lobster pots piled by the side,
Waiting for their bait,

A visitor walks,
Taking photos, fingers numb,
Scotland’s winter coast

lobster pots, anstruther

grounded boat, anstruther

white wing boat anstruther harbour

man on a pier, anstruther


These are a few photographs I took in Anstruther; a small former fishing village on the East Coast of Scotland. They were taken last winter, it was super cold and my fingers were numb holding the camera :)

  1. hey, thank you for the nomination, I’m not really sure I’m into awards, so I probably wouldn’t post about it on my blog. But thank you anyway and look forward to seeing more about your travels.
