Follow directions on Pittenweem 'Sandy Craig' mark for car parking.When you are in
the red chip car park,walk down to the white shelter at the top of the brae beside the outdoor swimming pool and look to your
right,up the firth towards St Monans,(west).

When you get to the white shelter you will see a path running along the foreshore
towards the west.Take this path and walk along until you are at the white sandstone 'cliff' in the picture above.The white
sandstone rocks now to your left going out to sea are where you will be fishing from.The next photo is taken from the
higher path going along the top of the braes.
(the path you will actually be walking along is in the foreground down at the bottom)
View from the top path of the mark.
As you can see from this picture above,this mark consists of a very long shingly gap
between two reefs,and a maked bay to the right of the long skelly.(all marked by dots). The idea here is to go out the sandstone
flatish rock to the right from low tide,and fish the bay and the gap between the skellies right up until full tide when you
can fish from the beach itself up between the two long rocks.
Closer view of the best spots to fish
This mark has been pretty much left alone for many years by most sea anglers,as it
received massive storm damage in the mid 70's which prevented it from being easily exited as the tide came in.However,at this
time most sea angling was done by handline and of course the extra distances available to rod anglers make this mark still
easily fishable.The key here is accurate casting,and fishing and moving as the tide comes in and gives you more water.With
a high tide,fishing from the white rocks and from the beach can be very productive,and rough seas make no difference as the
gap between the skellies is clear,and you can fish directly from the beach.
The flat(ish) skelly to the right of the soft ground here extends all the way back
to the beach and provides you with an easy ecsape as the tide comes in.
