An early shot of Nigg being built, showing a beach where the Dry Dock channel is now, and the Mooring Dolphins yet to be piled. An accomodation liner is berthed at Nigg Pier - which looks a lot longer than it is now.

I have a DVD and video of the whole constuction of the yard and Highland One, Highland Two, and the Magnus. If anyone wants a look just give me a shout. Comment left on 24 January 2005 at 22:08 by Ronald Young
