5) Beside the coast road east of St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland, UK.
Neil was geohashing on the way to a wedding in Scotland. This was attempt five of Five. This was the second new graticule of the day and in a new country for good measure. The hashpoint was beside the coast road 7.2 km east of St. Andrew's, Fife, Scotland (The one famous for golf). It was in a damp field of barley. The variety was unusual or perhaps just stunted by the bad weather earlier in the year. Neil walked up the tractor tracks without damaging the crop. The first tracks missed the hashpoint so a parallel line further east was tried. This worked perfectly and the distance dropped to zero. It was getting dark so the evidence photos are not so good. After this expedition, Neil met his friends for a beer. It's their son James who's getting married to Rachel. The hashpoints in latitude 54 and 55 were not at all convenient to get to. This journey was already long and tiring without adding these extra points. This was originally believed to be a virgin achievement but closer checking revealed another expedition in 2009 by Jones. I have added a link from the Dundee page to this expedition.
