Tour Scotland Leven Shell House

Hi Sandy, I was wondering if you could help me please My grandparents lived in Buckhaven, Fife, and I used to go there for holidays I seem to remember going to Leven and I seem to think there as a small house made entirely of shells. Unfortunately there is no one left in the family who remembers this. Was it there or was it a child's imagination ? Thank you, Carol.

Hi Carol, It existed as you can see above, and I also remember it well.

    I've managed to take a photo of the wall a few years ago when I went to Leven:
    Last time I went to Leven most of the shells were falling off so I'm guessing there's not much left now...

  3. Hi Carol.
    The "Buckie Hoose" was owned by relatives of my father.
    I went there often as a boy.
