Auchmithie is a superb part of the Scottish coast. Reached by steep, narrow steps, it opens onto a broad pebble beach, surrounded by imposing sandstone cliffs. As the waves advanced and retreated, they tossed the pebbles like popcorn, sending them clattering against each other. The resulting crescendo with each wave, was amplified by the cliffs, creating a deafening roar.
