Sailings from Nairn

Irene Mackintosh has sent us some material she came across during her research for her book "Street Names of Nairn". She says, 'little do we realise how much was going on in the 1800's.'Irene is right, her material shows that not only was there a daily ferrry to Cromarty 'every lawful day' but there was also a regular service to Edinburgh. And to think today we can't even get a bus service to operate down the Fishertown yet in the 1800's Nairn harbour was the gateway to the world. More of the material that Irene has found here.
Thanks Irene.
