Let's progress the walk to the next point of interest, the Lido. Had I taken the old South Road (which was the main access road to Peterhead from Aberdeen) we would have passed the old Peterhead Prison which is now a museum. See http://www.madridman.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=95332#Post95332
for posts on this.
Peterhead Lido is the stretch of land and sea to the south of the city, where the marina, sailing school, caravan park and beach are located.
It overlooks the harbour entrance
and the town
The semi-circular building is the Scottish Maritime Academy
The marina in the foreground
The old and new prisons in the distance
A small sailing boat dwarfed by huge cargo ships
A heron gull patiently waits for breakfast
Peterhead was once renowned as a fishing port
Lorries being loaded at the fish market
They were dredging the harbour...
