  5. Interesting and historic! Those would certainly keep any seagoing craft from beaching comfortably on that shore!

  8. You have got us all wondering....who were the Scots trying to keep out? I would love to know, too. I think I am going to have to go in search for an answer. The photo is fabulous...so much to see and to think about. Great capture.

  9. Yeah...I found it....they were used to deter invasion in WWII. The internet is just the greatest tool when you want to learn about something.
