Phi Phi Leh is an uninhabited island that lies 1.5km of the southernmost tip of Phi Phi Don. Stunning vertical cliffs capped with green foliage make way to small sandy beaches and tropical coral seas. Home to Maya Bay, Pi Leh Bay and more, not to be missed.

Old Kilpatrick’s church tower is a landward mark. The wartime blitz has left some of the gravestones pitted, chipped or repaired from enemy machine gun fire. The travel destination here cut through the bath-house of a Roman fort. Ferrydyke bascule bridge is the only break in a 1.5km stretch of travel destination. A bridge-keeper’s cottage is now ruinous. Nearby was the western terminal fort of the Roman Antonine Wall, which descended to the Clyde here after its sweep across Scotland from the Forth. There is an aptness in the two great engineering feats, almost two millennia apart, marching across the country so companionably. Does the Ferrydyke name commemorate this? On a winter walk this way I once watched two young swans fly in to land on the travel destination; they presumed it was water and it was only when they put down their big feet that they discovered the travel destination was frozen solid. The sight of swans sliding along on their bottoms, on their necks, and round and round reduced spectators to hysterics.
