Travel Tips for Peterhead

The Fishing Fleet Returns Home for Christmas

by scottishvisitor

For a few days just before Christmas the fishing fleet returns to her home port of Peterhead. It is at this special time the boats are decorated and lit up with Christmas Fairy Lights. As I wrote in another tip the only day they don't sail apart from a Friday is Christmas Day. I was away from home at Christmas this year but managed to catch the remaining decorated boats berthed in the harbour near the fish market just before they cast off their colourful decor and sailed once again. What a pretty sight to light up the dark harbour, the aptly named 'Star Light' was still in port along with a boat registered in Inverness from its home port in Hopeman accompanied by some smaller boats.

The Bonnie Ship the Diamond

by scottishvisitor

The Diamond was a whaling ship in the early 19th. century her home port was Peterhead. She sailed on many a voyage to the south of Greenland. The whaling fleet was large at that time and the whales were hunted to extinction, ships were forced to travel further into more hostile seas. This saw the Diamond hunting for whales further north west in the Davis Straits. The Diamond stayed too long in these icy waters and was trapped in the sea ice in Mellvil Bay along with twenty seven other vessels. One of the ships the Eliza Swan from Montrose managed to break free of the sea ice hold and came back to tell the sorry tale of the whalers who stayed too long. The link tells of more fortunate times in the Bonnie Ships life.bonnie ship the diamond by the Hootenanny singers :) see if you recognise some of them!

The Blue Toon

by scottishvisitor

"A Place with a growing population"

Peterhead is the largest town in Aberdeenshire, it is by no means a pretty town, but more a working town. Its main industy is and has always been fishing, this used to be important to local people, providing work in the fish factories but today the population has grown and the work force replaced by the many East Europeans who now live here. Peterhead is the closest town to my home village so I usually visit frequently for supermarket shopping, dental visits and other such every day things we do. If and when the winter recedes and we have some nice sunny days I will return to capture more of this town.
