Fish is still cleaned and cured in the village.
Sandend is an old fishing village on the Moray Firth Coast. The village was very well established by the early 1600s. Keen historians will also delight in some of the remnants of World War II still on display. These are on the beach and include a pill box and anti-tank positions.
The harbour you see today was constructed in the 1800s and it seems likely that fisher cottages huddled around it date back to around the same time. The Scotts and locals call the village ‘Sanine’.
