During my recent visit to see my 'new born'
grandson, I captured these images of Peterhead which is a
fishing village in the north east of
Scotland not far from Aberdeen.
Peterhead was established in 1593 with the
building of the first harbour and in 1865
the lifeboat station was founded. In the
1970s Peterhead became an oil service centre
for the oil industry and the St Fergus Gas
Terminal was completed.
Today, Peterhead remains very much a fishing
port and a base to over 500 fishermen.
