Cooper Street, Plockton

This photograph shows Cooper Street (Sraid a'Chubair), possibly taken from Goat Island, with Harbour Street on the extreme left. The land in the foreground was at one time used for drying nets. Although there is no evidence of barrel making in Plockton, the word cooper was also used as a verb 'to put things in barrels' so herring may have been salted and packed in barrels in this part of the village
