Curiosity got the better of me and I returned with camera to take photos.
This one has a lucky horseshoe above the door and has been given a name - Colonsay. It is easy to get a sense of how close to the shore they are from this picture.
They seem to be made out of different material: corrugated iron; wood; sheet metal and brick.
There are quite a few along this stretch of shore:
All of them seem to have a form of heating given the pipes coming out of the roofs. They've been made into a sort of home from home. Some have fencing round the front and you can see the upturned boat in the far ground.
At a guess - the huts are probably used for fishing or they could they be a seaside version of the garden shed?
No one was at home during my visit and I'm going to keep a lookout because I have more questions of curiosity:
- when were they built
- are they owned / bought
- have they been kept in families
- are they just an escape from the daily grind
