West Isles |
Founded in 1805 by William Young of Inverugie, this quiet
unspoilt fishing village is extremely popular with
holidaymakers, who come to enjoy the many local amenities -
sea bathing, sea fishing, sailing, boating, bowling, walking
and golf. On both sides of the harbour are sheltered, gently
sloping beaches of fine white sand, ideal for children.
The small harbour itself is now mainly used by pleasure craft,
though the local fishing connection is maintained by
fishermen from the village who own or crew over twenty boats
based in other ports where fish markets are still held.
