    Default Mackay.

    Just to let you know that Fletter,surname was spelt Mackay,as it is on his birth certificate,the same with my gran maggie jane and my grandad Donald Mackay(Lummy)better known as Dan,whom i'am named after,now my Uncle Donald Mckay took it upon himself to take the A out of Mackay,for reasons only known to him,but we all are MACKAY....

    Peter, Im just watching the Moray Firth video 1961- which is pretty amazing if just for the changes in the last 48 years but theres a wifie putting tickets on the fish shes just bought- who was she?

    Fish auctions on the Wharf!!!??? Mental, the vermin with wings would never allow that these days, theyd be off with the fish while you try to chase them away lol. Smoking while bidding!!! Class, changed days

    Hi all

    Just wondering whether anyone has a picture of Good Hope that they could email me, my father has fond memories of this boat from his childhood and would love to give him a photo of it for his birthday next week if at all possible?

    Kind regards

    The site that was and still is down is "wkboats.co.uk"

    I'd love to see it up and running again.
    Im looking for pics / info of the "Royal Burgh". Any help?
