The View from Maggie’s Bench

If you walk around the firehills you may come across this memorial bench. It makes a good resting spot for those that have climbed the steep hill to get there. I think these benches are a better memorial than a gravestone. They are in the public eye at all times (at least to those who can be bothered to walk there) and serve a useful purpose. The wording on this bench expresses how loved Margaret Sutton was, more so than many other memorial benches which often say something like ‘he sat here quite a lot’ or something similar.

This isn’t the greatest of photographs, but it shows the view that people resting on the bench can enjoy. In the distance, on the hill, the Coast Guard station can be seen.
