These rather strange structures are guidance pillars at the entrance to a natural tidal harbour on the east side of Fleet Bay in Dumfries and Galloway. The vessel approaching the harbour at high tide steers between the two pillars that can be seen in the middle distance in the photograph. The pilot would then keep the closest pillar on the port side on the final approach to the harbour. Can't help feeling that the original architect of the pillars designed a little visual joke for the passengers of the approaching vessels!
Thanks for looking.
