St Andrews, West Port

St Andrews, West Port
The West Port of St Andrews was built in 1587 as a monumental entrance to the city’s South Street. It was less a defensive structure than it was a symbol of civic pride. Its design is based on that of the Netherbow in Edinburgh – which, in turn, was modelled on Paris’s Porte Saint-Honore. The gate was extensively refurbished in 1843. Quoted from the Historic Environment website

I'm always fascinated by the arched entries to cities from long ago. Thanks for the information on this! I like the interplay in this photo between the arch and the painted traffic circle.

Just through the west port on the left was the Brownies meeting hut. I was in the group called the Scottish Kelpies. Our song was:
We're the little Scottish Kelpies, Smart and quick and ready helpers.
