The Ladys tower, Ruby Bay, Elie 02 - Fife
the ladys tower at Ruby bay, Elie, Fife.
Lady Janet Anstruther of Elie had Ladys tower built in the 1770's as a summer house, She was a bit of a character, and not always a sympathetic one. Lady Janet loved to bathe in the sea, but she also loved her privacy. Whenever she felt inclined to bathe, she sent a man through the streets of Elie to ring a bell, warning the townsfolk to keep away. She also levelled the village of Balclevie because it ruined her view.
Ruby Bay is named after the garnets (gemstones) which have been known to wash ashore here and which occasionally still do.
