As the harbour was not constructed until 1882-83, fishing was conducted from the natural inlet known as 'The Hythe, 'Crooked Hythe' or 'Slip Shore'. A slipway was built by Herd & McKenzie in 1903, & around 32 Steam Drifters were built up to the outbreak of WW1. In 1918 they shifted to Cluny Harbour, Buckie.
