Scope and Content Salmon fishing station, Tugnet, Spey Bay, Morayshire This station at the mouth of the Spey is the largest and finest salmon station in Scotland. It consists of a U-plan block of bothy, stores and boiling house, a courtyard range of fishermen's houses, and a three-chamber icehouse. This view shows the back of the three-chamber icehouse, with its earth-covered vaults and side and end doors for loading ice into them. In the foreground is a salmon coble of a type peculiar to Tugnet. Salmon fishing was widely practised in Scotland, especially on the north and east coasts. At one time fish were par-boiled and packed in ice for shipment to the London market, hence the boiling house and ice house here. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
