The Friends of Hugh Miller


A close community of herring fishers lived in these vennels. Many of the cottages still stand, although their turf roofs have long since been replaced by slate, the cobbled streets by tarmac. The fisherfolk were a distinct people, with their own customs, dialect, and mode of living, memorably observed by Miller, and captured in some very fine photographs about 1900, some of which can be seen in the Courthouse.
