A look at Macduff, Banffshire, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, UK [02:41]
The port of Macduff lies opposite Banff at the mouth of the River Deveron. Originally known as the sea 'toune' of Doune, the settlement's name was changed to Macduff in 1783 by James Duff, Earl of Fife who built a harbour there. Macduff took over the fishing trade of the older settlement of Banff and became a significant herring port in the 19th century. Macduff Shipyards is one of the few remaining shipbuilding and repair centres in North East Scotland and is a significant local employer. Wooden as well as steel-hulled vessels are still constructed at the shipyard. 0:03 - Macduff Harbour. 0:34 - Panorama of Banff and Macduff. Banff in the background with the beach.
