This photograph shows Cooper Street (Sraid a'Chubair) looking east from Harbour Street with the bay on the right. 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.
