Fishing boats tied up at Inverness Harbour

Fishing boats tied up at Inverness Harbour, with North Kessock in the background. The three boats in the foreground are 'Heatherlee', 'True Love' and 'Twinkling Star'.
Fishing is one of the oldest industries associated with Inverness. Until World War II, sprats, known as 'Garvies', were landed at Inverness. Most of the catch was cured and exported. Small herring were also caught and sold fresh or sent away for canning
