One of the leading members of the Tall Ships Youth Trust fleet spent some time recently anchored off the Largo coast.

The Stavros S Niarchos put to sea for a 10-day voyage as a character-building adventure for some young people, which took it around the top of Scotland.

The vessel was heading from Liverpool to Blyth in Northumberland, carrying around 40 pupils from four schools in the north east.

A spokesman said it was a while since such a trip had been undertaken and the youngsters thoroughly enjoyed the experience, with good sailing weather a big factor.
