Cooper Street, Plockton

This photograph shows Cooper Street (Sraid a'Chubair) looking east from Harbour Street with the bay on the right. The land to the right was used for drying nets. Although there is no evidence of barrel making in Plockton, the word cooper can also be used as a verb 'to put things in barrels' and the salting of herring and packing them in barrels may have been carried out in this part of the village. The village hall now stands on the grassy area to the left
