After a drive of around 15 miles south from a wet and windy stop in St Andrews, we were delighted to arrive in a sunny Lower Largo on the Fife coast.
Lower Largo Harbour
There’s a fascinating sculpture, ‘Malagan’ by local artist Alan Faulds, in his garden by the beach. Faulds was inpsired to create the work after visiting Lithuania in 2007, where he saw many Roofed Poles, tall structures like totem poles by the roadside. The name Malagan comes from the wooden ceremonial sculptures made in the New Ireland region of Papua New Guinea.

I assumed that this gate, across the road from the sculpture, lead to Alan Faulds’ home.
