Shore street


shore street b&W, originally uploaded by ccgd.

When I first visited Cromarty 30 years ago - a student job surveying the farms in Easter Ross and the Black Isle (and its amazing to think that though I'd been brought up in Inverness, I'd never been to the town, I knew it as a location on a NTS poster that hung on the wall in our Bathroom in Kingsmills Gardens) most of the east end of the town was almost derelict. Though the place was booming, with Nigg, and the Beatrice Terminal which was under construction, Fishertown and most of Church Street looked a bit sorry for itself.

When we moved here six years later, it was not much better. Now only one property in Fishertown lies un-restored and unkempt.

Quite a change, quite a change indeed.
