The leaning doocot of Crail

The leaning doocot of Crail
This doocot (dovecote) was built probably in the 16th century and provided nesting places for up to 700 birds. They were a source of winter meat and eggs for the residents of a nearby priory or chapel, long since defunct. Crail, Fife.

love the textures on the wall of the doocot... love the mowing line in the grass leading one's eye further into the frame... so much to see in this seemingly "empty" landscape...

I've seen a wooden one, never stone. Interesting feeling of a lonely-looking coast.

That has to be the biggest dovecote I've ever seen - it makes a great focal point in this shot though drawing the eye in nicely!

It lseems to be quite well looked after.
