Fresgoe and Sandside Harbour
Fresgoe, sometime called Fresgoe harbour, looks over Sandside Bay and Dounreay and is beside Sandside Harbour that was built around 1835 for around £3000 by the engineer James Bremner. Is an fascinating old fishing and trading harbour with an unusual stone construction. Sandside beach is close by, a lovely sandy beach bounding on the Reay Golf Course. Today the harbour is used for small leisure boats and a few local boats that are used for lobster and crab fishing. Fresgo harbour is near the village of Reay with its pretty cottages and golf course.
