Fodor's Review

Moored next to the Unicorn, you'll see a strange red ship, the North Carr Lightship. After playing a significant role in World War II, Scotland's only remaining lightship was wrecked on the Fife shore during a storm in 1959; seven crew members were lost. The ship is currently closed for refurbishment, but is worth a look from the dock.
