Mr Monkey visits Inchcolm Abbey

"That's where we're getting off, you know"

Mr Monkey looking at small islets in the Forth Mr Monkey approaching Inchcolm Island

Mr Monkey did his best to ignore the different breeds of sea-owls lurking on small islands in the Forth, concentrating on looking for Inchcolm Island. After he'd been out in the river for about 45 minutes, he spotted a building that looked so much like an abbey that he knew he was arriving at Inchcolm. As well as the ruins of the abbey, the island has a lot of military installations left over from the two world wars, when Inchcolm was garrisoned to defend the Firth of Forth against naval attack.
