Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Brora

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Brora, Sutherland, Scotland. This village is the Highlands. It had at one time a coal pit, boat building, fishing, salt pans, fish curing, lemonade factory, the new Clynelish Distillery, as well as the old Clynelish distillery which is now called the Brora Whisky distillery, wool mill, bricks and a stone quarry. Brora was the first place in the north of Scotland to have electricity thanks to its wool industry. The village is situated where the A9 road and the Far North Line bridge the River Brora. The village is served by a railway station. To the south east of the village is the former Brora Y Station which operated as a Government listening station between 1940 and 1986. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
