  • Running the Gauntlet

    by Flyingscotsmin Written Oct 21, 2007

    On an extremely windy day, venture down to the breakwater and instead of oooing and aaaing as the waves crash over, sometimes up to 100 ft, try running, with friends, towards the lighthouse/beacon at the end and back and the winner is whoever is the driest!

    Fraserburgh has many Churches

    Church Spires

    On our last visit to Fraserburgh we hoped to go up to the top of the lighthouse to take some pictures of the town itself. Unfortunately it was closing on our arrival, so only managed to capture one church spire from the harbour. For such a little town, Fraserburgh has a lot of Churches.

    Imagine the noise this fellow created

    Giant Fog Horn

    The Fog Horn was built in 1902 by the Northern Lighthouse Board to guide generations of mariners safely into port the motto of the Board is "In Salutem Omnium" ("For the safety if all") I can only imagine the local residents delight when the fog horn was replaced by more modern technology & finally finished wailing in 1991.
