I love Cockenzie Power Station. As far as I am concerned, it does not have a best side. It is dirty and modern and boxy and symmetrical and I love it from every angle. Few towns are so dominated by a single modernist building as Cockenzie on the Firth of Forth; its power station carries itself like a medieval cathedral towering over its hinterland. If you've ever lived in Edinburgh, then even from a distance of ten miles you will know these distinctive twin chimneys — each one an elegant and stately feet high. That's two and half times the height of the Scott Monument and, for me at least, no less monumental.
