Coastwatch St Monans Unit now has a very special lookout post in the form of a former windmill at East Braes in the village.

The unit, which was set up last October, will man the windmill - which is owned by Fife Cultural Trust - three days per week.

The keys were officially handed over last Friday, with station officer John Kinsman - a former Auxilary Coastguard with eight years experience - there to collect them, along with volunteer Jordon McMullan and Anne Kinsman, D/HoU, from Rosemary Murray and Bill Hanafin from the Fife Cultural Trust, which 
owns a number of historical buildings across the Kingdom.

Coastwatch Scotland was founded in 2008 as a coastal safety and monitoring organisation run entirely by volunteers.

The East Neuk of Fife Unit was set up in October 2013 and covers an area from Anstruther to Elie Ness.

There are six Coastwatch Stations based in Scotland, and all are run by uniform volunteers.

The unit will be at the windmill 1.30 - 4.30 p.m. on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday and everyone is welcome to come and visit for some information and a chat.
