  Rattray Head - Seatown (Botany)
The parish of Crimond used to operate fishing boats from the Burn of Rattray estuary in Strathbeg Bay until the dunes eventually sealed it from the sea to form the Loch of Strathbeg in the 1720s.
Officially the Seatown of Rattray, it quickly became known as Botany after the desolate penal colony recently established in 1788 at Botany Bay in Australia.
After further advertising for fishermen in 1838, a few fisher families moved to Botany around 1842 where they endured a very meagre existence, quite often living off the many rabbits, ducks, and gulls in the area.

  Wikinfo | Head
In vertebrates the contents of the head are protected by an enclosure of bone called the skull, which is attached to the spine.
This use might stem from the fact that the head is the highest placed part of the human body, or from the fact that the brain and therefore cognitive functions and decision making is located in the head.
A head is a type of inflorescence, previously known as a composite flower — a structure composed of numerous individual flowers.

Subtending and often partly enclosing the florets of the head is one or more series of usually green, free or variously connate bracts called involucral bracts or phyllaries.
Where both types are found in a single head, the central flowers have tubular, usually 4-5- lobed corollas, and generally are bisexual, and the peripheral flowers have strap-shaped corollas generally with 3 distal teeth, and are usually female.
Each of the heads is reduced to a single disk floret with subtending involucral bracts and these simplified heads are in turn arranged in a compact head.
