A lovely little walk out to the pier to have a few 2ps in the machines followed by a drink in the lovely eaterie. Highlight of the trip was seeing the awesome moustache on Calton who works there. Brilliant views across the bay.

The pier is closed and you cannot get to it. The only access is to the life boat station.
