Cowie

img_0633-1Hope that you are enjoying following our travels on our Coastal Tour!  This week, we are in the historic fishing village of Cowie.  The village has existed since the Middle Ages.

We came in from the North and just underneath the railway bridge, we took a sharp left and stopped here.  We parked near Cowie Golf Club and took a little walk down to St Mary’s of the Storms Chapel and graveyard.  The Chapel dates back to the 13th century and is now quite ruinous, however it still retains a few of the original wonderful features including the 3 lancet windows.  The graveyard was extended in 1892 and continued to be used until not that long ago.  Ships and anchors can be seen on the headstones which stand in memory of those who lost their lives at sea.

The Chapel and graveyard are located on the cliff edge and you can get a fantastic view out towards the sea.  The day that we visited, the sea was very calm and the sun was shining so we were lucky and had a great view.  The sea has many different moods so even if the sun was not shining, I am sure it would still be great to just take in the view!

It is certainly worth a wee visit!
