Port Errol  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Port Errol like this:

Port-Errol or Ward-of-Cruden, a coast village in Cruden parish, Aberdeenshire, at the mouth of the Water of Cruden, 11½ miles NE of Ellon, under which it has a post and telegraph office. A promising station of the herring fishing, it has a lifeboat and rocket apparatus, an hotel, 68 boats, and a recent harbour, whose inner basin is 300 feet long and 150 to 175 feet wide. The Aberdeen Lime Co. here ships corn, and imports coal, manures, etc., doing a large business. Pop. (1881) 493.—Ord. Sur., sh. 87, 1876.
