Avoch Harbour by Night
Avoch (pronounced OKH; from the Scottish Gaelic: Abhach – meaning mouth of the stream) is a harbour-village located on the south-east coast of the Black Isle, on the Moray Firth.
Avoch harbour was built originally in 1814 by Sir Alexander Mackenzie, and was designed by Thomas Telford - famed for his works of engineering throughout Scotland. Fishing for herring and sprats in the Moray Firth provided much of the local living for the thriving village of Avoch. This lasted for more than 100 years, but is now a distant memory for most.
My original painting of Avoch Harbour by Night has been sold.
