This is a photo taken early 1950s of the chip shop at 13 Dock St which was always flooded after a high tide and a gale. It was a J Mann Muirale House who was county councillor at the time who fought tooth and nail to help the people of the dock area to get a sea wall built. He did so much for the village but was never recognised. In the picture I was looking for my friend Dennis!!!

Loving all the pictures of Avoch and surrounding area. Im currently living at 8 The Dock known now as Glenbervie cottage. I would love to hear from anyone who has any pictures of this old cottage or any knowledge of previous families who have lived here. Thanks.

My maternal grandfather William Munro lived at 13 Dock for most of his childhood (after moving from Factory Lane). Must have been a tough place to live in the bad weather!
