Three priapic pillars of Knockbrex.

After rounding Barlocco Isle, Tony and I took a break on the sands of Knockbrex beach, which comes complete with a...

... "Coo Palace". This Galloway term describes a folly, which in this case is not the castle it appears to be but was actually built as a boathouse and beach changing room for Knockbrex House which... nearby. There is a hidden harbour behind this second castellated building.

These three priapic pillars sit in the middle of Knockbrex Bay and have long stood as navigational markers for the hidden harbour beyond. Sadly, the one on the right is drooping a little.
