Someone has contacted me, asking for any info on a builder of salmon cobles in the Macduff area.Builder was called Newburgh. It rings no bells with me, has anyone else any info on this?

Hi
There is a town on the east coast of Scotland North of Aberdeen called Newburgh.
As far as I know there was a ship builder in that town many years ago.
And I am sure they were builders of Salmon Cobbles.

I fished the Ythan ( Sea Trout ) at Newburgh manys a time and knew the area very well around the late 60s /70s . To my knowledge there was no cobble builder there at that time .
