The barriers that were supposed to stop access to the crumbling end of the pier have collapsed in the storm. Not that they were particularly effective as it was easy enough to get round the side, but I suppose they did act as an indicator to the perilous state of the pier.
Can only wonder at what further damage may be done over the winter if no repairs are made. Such a shame.

A splendid new wooden footbridge has been built at the southern end of Keil's Den. There was a crossing here on stepping stones at this point but latterly they had become very uneven and slippery and virtually impossible if the burn was in spate..
Using the bridge in the middle, the road bridge at the top of the den and this new bridge several different circular walks can now be enjoyed. The den is managed by the Woodland Trust Scotland but the bridge was funded with a generous donation from a frequent visitor to the den.

The memorial was erected on the 20th Anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem in September 1964. This month the 70th Anniversary is being commemorated. A new memorial to mark this event is going to be unveiled in the garden later this month.
