Dividing the Catch, Thurso fisherfolk

People standing at the mouth of the River Thurso dividing a large catch of fish. The fishing industry still survives into the 21st Century, having moved to the larger port of Scrabster.

Situated on the Pentland Firth in the sheltered Thurso Bay, Thurso is the most northerly town on the Scottish mainland. Thurso is a long established town with origins dating back to Viking times when it was an important Norse settlement and the major gateway to mainland Scotland.
