Kite Boarding is big in Fife, and one very popular location is the West Sands at St Andrews.  Here are a few photos from there, taken one evening.

Kite Landboarding (22nd Jul 2010)

Kite Landboarding is one of the relatively new wind sports, and the West Sands at St Andrews are an ideal venue as there is a large almost flat beach at low tide.  Many (maybe most) of the participants are students from St Andrews University.

St Andrews Castle (1st Nov 2006)

St Andrews is rightly very well known.  It has the oldest University in Scotland (1413), it’s the self-proclaimed Home of Golf, it’s history goes back to the mid-1100’s and it has held a Royal Charter since 1620 and it’s Bishops have at times run Scotland more than the King did.

It also has many old buildings, including the now decaying Castle.  This picture was taken looking west, from the start of the harbour wall.
