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?

Boatbuilder called Newburgh in Macduff Area

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.

Refer to Wikipedia, it gives some details of a coastal town called Newburgh in Aberdeenshire.

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 .
