Speaking at the YES campaign's meeting in the URC in Nairn on Friday night Dennis Canavan reminisced on a previous visit to Nairn, he said:
"I was walking in the morning along the beach and I came across this notice describing Nairn as "the Brighton of the North". What an insult! I've been to Brighton many a time to the Labour Party conference and I know, I've seen Brighton Beach and there's not a grain of sand on it at all. It's just a pebble beach, it's not a patch on this wonderful beach you have here in Nairn. I would describe it as the Caribbean of the North. Sometimes in Scotland we do undersell ourselves."
