Statement of Interest

"a large establishment for the preserving of the salmon caught

all along the coast." (Imperial Gazetteer.)

Probably that station referred to in NEW STATISTICAL ACCOUNT

directly (rather than let) by Sutherland Estates, when

"an experience salmon fisherman from Morayshire engaged

as manager.
