Description:

Rosehearty and Sandhaven, on the north east coast of Scotland experienced speedy development linked to the fishing industry and specifically to the East Coast herring industry boom in the mid-19th century. When the herring shoals decreased, the villages diversified into tourism but the short season limited the growth of the industry. New Aberdour was a tradesman village serving the local region. Today the area is a popular residential spot with many folk commuting quite a distance to work, preferring a high quality of family life over convenience. The charm of the area is beautifully demonstrated in the collection of photographs here.
