The following pages describe what life was like for those who lived and worked in the fishing communities around the coast of North East Scotland.

The Gutting Quines didn’t travel on the boats but by train from port to port. Their belongings were taken up in kists in the boats of the fathers, brothers and husbands. They started early in the Herring Season up in Shetland then as the fish moved further south they were at Fraserburgh and Peterhead. They then moved south to Grimsby and then Yarmouth for the last of the fishing.
