About Sandside

Sandside Harbour and the associated fishing store and cottages were built in 1830 by Major William Innes of Sandside. The harbour faces east and is sheltered to the west by higher ground. Dounreay nuclear facility is clearly visible from the harbour and surrounds. The fishing store and some of the cottages remain in good order.

This harbour is also known as Fresgoe, after the small village where it is located.
