But it wasn't just my childhood there. My Mum still lives very nearby, and I still head out on walks (mainly in the summer - bit windy in winter!). We particularly visited a lot when Jimmy was alive, as he was an avid swimmer!
One of my training walks for Everest Base Camp actually took my Dad, Jimmy and I on a 20 mile walk from Tayport to Leuchars and back. It's a very relaxing walk, and wandering amongst sand dunes and tall pine trees is just so peaceful. It's definitely a popular route for dog walkers, cyclists and runners alike. You can even spot horse riders trotting up and down where the waves meet the sands. Beautiful.
