Tour Scotland Video Firth Of Tay Newburgh Fife

Tour Scotland video of the Firth of Tay on ancestry visit to Newburgh, Fife, Scotland. For some the industries of the town of Newburgh chiefly consisted of the making of linen and floorcloth, malting and quarrying, and there was fishing, especially of salmon. The harbour was used for the transshipment of the cargo vessels bound for Perth, Perthshire, with ships over 200 tons. But most of these industries have now gone. A linoleum factory, owned by Courtaulds, which had been the town's principal employer, closed in May 1980 after a large fire destroyed much of the building.
