Aha, this was a story and a half!!!! One of our fellow motorhomers, camped on the beach with us, told us the tale of these two fences. We had already taken the photo, thinking that two fences so close together was a strange sight, before we were told the saga.
Apparently, the land here, starting from the beach and taking in the hill behind, belongs to two different owners. Arguments take place regularly over each other gaining a little ground every so often. I seem to remember, the fences actually belong to the same person, not being happy with where his first border was, he erected a second, taking in a little of the other fellows land!!!
All the land to the left belongs to a man who was left it by Gavin Maxwell, in his will. He allows people to camp on the beach but does not bother keeping the place tidy, thus it looks like a tip at times. Such a shame, as the landowner on the other side, also allows camping on the beach but looks after the land and always welcomes people year after year. He even pulls out motorhomes that have become bogged down. Unfortunately, owner no. 1 is building on his acquired land and it is feared he is selling more plots to developers. Oh dear.... nothing stays the same.
