Scope and Content Burghead Harbour, Morayshire This harbour is situated on a headland projecting into the Moray Firth, the site of an ancient settlement. The works consist of a rectangular basin with its entrance protected by a breakwater. This view shows the lighthouse at the end of the 1880s extension of the breakwater. This was built in the 1960s to replace the original 1880s one. This harbour was designed for coastal shipping and for fishing. It was improved in 1832, 1835, 1881-7 and in the late 1980s. It is still used by inshore fishing vessels and by small coasting vessels. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
