Local historian, Derek Jennings, visited St Fergus Primary School recently to give pupils a talk on the Smugglers, Wreckers and Pirates associated with St Fergus and Rattray.

Derek said: “The area around St Fergus in a time not so very long ago furnished its full quota to the record of Pirates, Wreckers and the old smuggling days, that has afforded material for so many stirring tales of daring and adventure and of bloody encounters between the smugglers the wreckers, the revenue men and French pirates.”

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the talk as you can see by the pictures above.
