Tour Scotland Photograph Video Sea Wall


Tour Scotland photograph of the sea wall and houses in, Pittenweem, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. The white houses with red roofs illustrate the classic East Neuk building style, influenced by trade with the Low Countries (Belgium and the Netherlands). The East Neuk offered natural trading ports for Dutch and Belgian captains as they sailed up past the east coast of England. These ships brought red pantiles as ballast, and the locals soon found them to be excellent roofing material.
