Herring Drifters at pier with crew, Ullapool

This photograph shows herring drifters at Ullapool Pier during the 1960s. The boat at the front is The Amethyst. A buoy cage for the drift net can be seen to the right of the cabin and the fishermen are dressed in yellow oilskin jackets with white thigh boots.

Ullapool was developed as a fishing station in 1788 by the British Fisheries Society. Every season boats and herring gutters would arrive from all over Scotland. The herring industry declined in the 1930s and the processing became more centralized on the east coast although boats continued to fish on the west coast.
