Lybster was once an important herring fishing port just south of Wick. Today the fisherman are gone leaving behind a lovely stone harbour and village of stone houses. It
The village must have been busy on the days when the Herring fleet hove into port. The small stone harbour would have been crammed with boats and on stormy days and nights, there must have been many a family worrying about their men out at sea.
