My beloved Broughty Ferry Castle which holds many memories for me.
I played on the beach around and beneath it – fabulous rock pools. I watched people fishing from the pier. I learned to swim in the harbour there. There were scary high waves which crashed against the walls on a stormy day. The park is nearby and we had talent shows there every week. We swam on the safe beach nearby. Mum would provide me with a packet of crisps and a drink as a “shivery bite” and yes, the water was very cold. We collected shells and drew in the sand, built sand castles, buried each other in the sand! I had a very blessed childhood with lots of freedom and places to play.
