Scope and Content Stone pawl at landward end of north pier of St Andrews Harbour, St Andrews, Fife St Andrews Harbour was first mentioned as a fishing port in 1226, though it probably existed in ancient times. By the later 16th century it had quays and piers. These were modified and rebuilt over the centuries, often because of storm damage. This stone pawl was used for tying up vessels. Before the piers and quays were built, boats would have simply been beached on the sands in the natural haven of the Kinness Burn estuary. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
