Old Photograph Sand Castle Building Competition Ettrick Bay Scotland

Old photograph of a Sand Castle building competition at Ettrick Bay, Isle of Bute, Scotland. The bay faces the Kyles of Bute, that is a narrow sea channel that separates the northern end of the Isle of Bute from the Cowal peninsula. The bay is bounded by a coarse sandy beach which is popular with tourists and local people. During low tide, the waters edge can be up to 500 metres from the high tide mark. A number of rivers flow into the bay including the Glenmore Burn, Ettrick Burn, Drumachloy Burn and St Colmac Burn. Ettrick bay was used for practice training for D Day landings.
