1 thought on “The Rock Formations Around Elie Bay”
My grandfather’s people came from Elie. (Their surname was Dick.) I notice a ‘Rumlin Gut’ marked off Chapel Ness. Our family used to call the ‘Rumbling Gut’ the subterranean channel that cuts through the flat shelf north west of Sauchar Point and emerges in a deep trench about 20 feet long and 6 wide. At certain states of the tide there used to be a rumbling sound caused by trapped pockets of air. It can look quite eerie just before the rising tide submerges the shelf.
