What harbour is this from? Comment left on 16 May 2005 at 17:00 by Mark Ligertwood
Hi Mark - the picture is taken from one part of Cromarty harbour (the Mole), looking into the basin. Comment left on 16 May 2005 at 20:47 by Garve Scott-Lodge

This system is not large enough to hold the the epic tales of Skip Mackay THAT is the "MFV ROBENA" She had more "mayday" calls than Days in the month of May

Scratching my head a bit I think it was the same era as the original Para Handy TV tales with Duncan Munro? A lot of the exploits were similar but with leanings towards the "fushing" as opposed to "coasting". Memory also says there was an expeditionary trip undertaken to the sand banks near where McDermots built their yard. Very forward thinking. Comment left on 05 January 2009 at 20:27 by Dennis Manson
oh an era to remember "danny pochie" up to his oxters in herring on an avochie boat An "gibbie maw" taking the bible to the pulpit for rev jenkins And mrs Airds canteen dinners out of this world Sunday school with mrs matheson in the west church The whist club christmas party who put all the cream cookies into the hall piano Ah the memories These were the things that made us what we are to day the "CROMS" WE NEED MORE tales and legends from that era Comment left on 06 January 2009 at 20:39 by DAVEY JONES 06/01 /2009

I am busy collecting stories about characters and life in the Fishertown for a exhibition this Summer in the Courthouse. Please share your stories and memories with me so that we can include them in the exhibition. There must certainly be plenty out there.
