Loch Clash Harbour and Coney Island, Kinlochbervie, 1910s

This postcard shows a view of Coney Island and Loch Clash Harbour at Kinlochbervie. Loch Clash was the site of Kinlochbervie's main pier from 1908 until as recently as the 1970s. However, a location at Loch Bervie was developed in response to Kinlochbervie's growing fishing industry.

Today, Kinlochbervie harbour, which was developed in the 1940s, is one of the major fishing ports in Scotland. Fishing boats land their catches at the fish handling depot, built in 1988, and the fish are then transported in large refrigerated lorries throughout the United Kingdom and Europe
