Tuesday's 'watch' were brilliant ! The Heritage centre is an absolute find. We spent the whole day there and will definitely return when next in Buckie. I was happy beyond words with the information, history and knowledge that everybody shared with me. God bless all the volunteers who created and keep the heritage going.

This is a fascinating place to see how the fishing industry around Buckie developed, from very humble beginnings to a major industry and its subsequent decline. It is very professionally run by a wonderful group of volunteers who a passionately dedicated to preserving a wonderful history. We had a conducted tour around the exhibits which are amazing though my daughters were horrified to find that origional bouys were made from dogs & cats. The models of the fishing boats are meticulously recreated, as are the models showing the development of the different nets. The photographs give a wonderful insight into the past, in fact the whole experience was humbling and the visit to the chapel was sad yet beautiful remembering all the lost souls. A very moving place.

Went as a group of about 30. We were shown a film using old photos and some film of the local area, from Cullen to Portgordon. We were told of the history of the area, about the various types of boats, about the herring fleets and about the building of the railway.
We were also told about the German Spies that landed at Portgordon during the war and how they were captured. The film is spoken in Dorich, with subtitles, for those who don't understand. We were then at leisure to look around the centre, to admire the model boats and to ask the volunteers questions about the exhibits. A very interesting and informative visit.
