Peterhead, Scotland

We left Inverness and headed towards St. Andrews.  If we drove directly there it would have taken over 2 hours but we decided to make a detour and head toward the northeast coast to the city of Peterhead.  This made the drive over 5 hours but was worth to see the city that my mom’s grandpa left from to come to America.  This is not a tourist town but a major fishing port for Scotland.  We did talk to the Register’s office, and if we call them back with more information on my great grandpa, they will help do some research on figuring out exactly where he came from and the names of his parents.  The town isn’t very picturesque, and I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that had a camera out.
