ST ANDREWS BEACH

West Sands Beach 40 x 70cm  Gouach on Paper


This is a gouache and ink painting, a commission, of West Sands St Andrews beach in Fife. (Gosh I have been busy). The beach became famous as a training run in the 1981 film, 'Chariots of Fire', about Olympic athletes Eric Liddell and Harald Abrahams.

The ever-handy online guide WALKING HIGHLANDS gives us the full picture! https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fife-stirling/west-sands.shtml

‘Stretch your legs on the spectacular and vast sandy beach made famous in the film, 'Chariots of Fire'. The route then passes through Eden Estuary nature reserve before a track leads between the famous golf courses with good views over fine buildings of St Andrews.
