Where are we?

Scottish Field - - PUZZLE PAGES -

Perched on the Mo­ray Firth coast this small har­bour town has a pop­u­la­tion of just over 1,700 peo­ple. It grew up around the ‘Old’ har­bour which dates from the 17th cen­tury and is the old­est on the Mo­ray Forth. It’s ‘New’ har­bour was built in 1825 due to de­mand from the grow­ing her­ring in­dus­try. It is fa­mous for its sub­tle green and red coloured stone, which is usu­ally re­ferred to as mar­ble but is in fact ser­pen­tine which has been used in the Palace of Ver­sailles. The town is also home to the Glen­glas­saugh dis­tillery.
