Must admit I can't see any beacon in Fasgadhs photo. You can still access the beach area at low tide, turn into the sewage works over the level crossing and head left down towards the pipe coating factory (parked at NT28450 76365). Low tide due at 1120 today but still some paddling would be required to access Eastern Craigs, not the weather for it today! Will return when weather and tide allow a closer inspection.

It is / was possible to follow the coast line all the way to the mouth of the docks. Visited on a spring low.
