The Wick herring fleet at a time when 500 gallons of whisky a day was consumed!

It must have been a wealthy place in those days.  It looks as though everyone had a yacht in the marina.

That's west to a not so busy Thurso harbor, the church tower in the town center stands out like a sore thumb!

How about compromising on north-west because that's just about where Thurso is in relation to Wick so I suppose "down the road" indeed isn't quite right. It's more like "up ee rodd" :laugh:

Not an easy one but only a guess, it may be Tarbert or Scalpay in Harris.

The picture in post 1 reminds me of modern day Essaouira in Morocco. (Game of thrones fans may recognise it)

Invergordon with a floating dock and the size of the ship I think that must be WW2.

Invergordon with a floating dock and the size of the ship I think that must be WW2.

I think it may be WW1. Invergordon opened as a naval base just as WW1 began and survived right through to the 1950s. But the general style of the ships, especially with the cross yards on the masts, is more reminiscent of WW1. It's difficult to get an idea of scale, but I'm wondering if the ship in the floating dock may be one of the earlier Dreadnoughts with 8 x 12 inch guns. Mind you I'd be happier with my WW1 suggestion if I could make out more detail of funnels on the big ship.
