Logie Buchan: across the River Ythan
Logie Buchan: across the River Ythan
The view towards the Ythan Estuary from Logie Buchan Bridge. The river is still tidal at this point and was once navigable as far as Ellon, a few miles further upriver. Ships docked at Newburgh, on the coast, and their cargoes of coal and fertiliser were offloaded onto barges which were towed upriver by a paddle steamer. Cargoes of cereals and other agricultural products made the reverse journey.
