HEAVY LIFT SHIP 'HAWK'



An unusual ship passing Brough today.
This is the semi submersible transport vessel ‘Hawk’  on its way from the Cromarty Firth to Broadbay in the Isle of Lewis. There it will lift the Transocean Winner rig (now refloated after running aground) and take it to Turkey to be scrapped.

CAMPBELLS and CAKES

Campbells and Cakes



Music in Thurso invites you to  celebrate National Chamber Music Day on Saturday September 17th at Brough.
Dundee-based duo, Hugh and Vicky Campbell (Flute and Guitar) will present an hour of music in the wonderfully atmospheric Lighthouse Store at Brough Harbour. The concert is free, with donations to Brough Bay Association, and will be at 2.30pm, followed by coffee and cake.
The event has a very personal touch for Music in Thurso's secretary, Susanne Lloyd-Jones, as she, Hugh and Vicky were fellow students at London's Trinity College, before their careers in music took different directions.



This event marks a musical prelude to Music in Thurso's main concert season which begins on Thursday 22nd September at 7.30pm with the Ruisi Quartet in Thurso West Church.
Please note that parking for Brough Bay is on the 'main road' through Brough towards Dunnet Head.  Please do not drive down to the harbour as the track is rutted and space is very limited.

Thank you.
