History of Buckie

Buckie grew from its origins as a small port to become the major fishing port of the Moray Firth, and Buckie Harbour was constructed in 1843. At the time of its construction, Buckie Harbour was one of the finest in Scotland. To this day it continues to be in commercial use and is one of the town’s major landmarks.
