Old Photograph Harbour Sandend Scotland
Old photograph of the harbour in Sandend near Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The village of Sandend was established as early as the 1600’s. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries it was an active fishing village. In the early days the fishermen would have pulled their small open decked boats onto the beach. The harbour was built in the 1800’s. and the houses adjacent to the harbour also date from the 1800’s. There were two fish houses in Sandend, Smith's and McKay's. After McKay's relocation to Buckie, only Smith's remains in Sandend. It now is a popular place for caravaners, holidaymakers and watersports enthusiasts. Local attractions include a sandy beach and an annual kipper barbecue, held in summer.
Jimmy Paterson, trombonist with Dexy's Midnight Runners, was born and raised in Portsoy.
