What is the harbour pictured Keith?
Added by Fred Johnston. on 24 February 2010
I think this is Wick and is that point in the background not referred to by the Weekers as the Orkney mans point?
Some misheld legend that lots of Orcadian seafarers have run ashore on it, dont know if that was on arrival or departure from that fair town!!
Added by John Budge on 24 February 2010
Could it be Wick.

Wonder if she didna end up doon aboot the Clyde, Carradale maybe renamed Ocean Starlight broken up 2002.

I agree with Tommy & John, Wick.

Looks like the beacon on the old pier head at Wick.

I saw the wheelhouse in Carradale being used as a shed a few years ago.

After i saw this photo i asked the old man why they had 2 gilsons at the trawl,he said no reason but to make it look pretty.

It is definately Wick, no doubt about that.

The 2 gilsons are for at the clams.
She has some cladding on her side there.

She was at the clams on the west coast working out o' Tobermory, Johnno was down too wi' the Flourish, and the Enterprise as well... I thought it would been earlier than 1969, but if thats the right date for the Kildinguie gettin' built, she must have been new when she was on the west coast. I was Skipper on the Shapinsay at that time working the west coast....
