Fish market at Kinlochbervie, 1950s

Kinlochbervie has become one of the major fishing ports in Scotland. Fishing boats, often based in east coast ports, land their catches here. Close to the harbour is the Free Presbyterian Church built in 1829 to a Thomas Telford design.

This photograph of the fish market shows Mrs Neilson of the Kinlochbervie Estate, Mr O'Hare, a fish merchant from Dingwall, George Morrison. a fish salesman, William Phimister, a fish merchant from Thurso, and D. H. MacLeod and James Ross, both fish merchants from Kinlochbervie.

Most of the boats were registered in east coast ports such as Cullen, Buckie and Macduff. The harbour at Kinlochbervie was close to the fishing grounds so the boats tended to be smaller and fish was landed and sold daily, Monday to Thursday. The name ‘PULFORD’ on the fish boxes indicates that they belonged to the company formed by the Duke of Westminster after World War II.
