Peterhead ship-lift
Modern hydraulic lift capable of raising large fishing vessels onto land and moving them into a repair shed (just visible at extreme right).

In the foreground is the 1885 dry dock originally built to repair the wooden vessels of the Greenland whaling fleet based in Peterhead.

The trawlers are PD197 Atlantic Challenge, and PD230 Starlight Days.
