Largo Viaduct

The harbour at Lower Largo, Fife, looking back towards the village, with the remains of the viaduct that once carried the Fife Coast line dominating the background. Lower Largo was, as every schoolboy knows, the home of Alexander Selkirk (1676-1721) a local sailor who spent 4 years marooned on a desert island and who is believed to have been the inspiration for Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe. Not that you'd know it here! Morning coffee is being taken in The Castaway Bar in the background, with the Crusoe Hotel standing on the right. The signpost at the roadside includes a pointer to Juan Fernandez Island (7,500 miles). For some reason the expression Thank God it's Friday came to mind...
