Description Aerial view of south-west section of Invergordon, looking N.

Date 26/9/2010

Collection J S Bone

Catalogue Number DP 342227

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content This view of Invergordon focuses on the harbour and the SW section of the town. It includes many sites associated with both world wars, e.g. the east pier and the site of the barrack blocks. The Royal Navy Port fuel depot is at centre right with the Free Church to its left. Invergordon Mains is at the centre of the photo. A naval dockyard was established at Invergordon at the beginning of the C20, taking advantage of the deep water channel and the town has many sites associated with naval activity during both world wars. The deep water channel which made the port so attractive to the Royal Navy also allowed Invergordon to engage with oil exploration and the tanker moored at the harbour in this photo is evidence of that activity. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
