Cove


Cove
   COVE, a village, in the parish of Nigg, county of Kincardine, 5 miles (S. S. E.) from Aberdeen; containing 421 inhabitants. This place, which is situated on the shore of the North Sea, derives its name from one of those numerous small bays or coves with which the coast is here indented, and is inhabited by persons employed in the fisheries. The fish taken are chiefly salmon, white-fish of various kinds, and lobsters, crabs, and other shell-fish. The salmon are caught in bagnets, and are packed in ice, and sent to the London market; and during the season, nine boats, varying from ten to fourteen tons' burthen, with crews of six men each, are engaged in the herring-fishery off the north coast. The cove, which forms a small natural harbour, affords sufficient shelter for the boats belonging to the place. A school has been established for the accommodation of this distant portion of the parish; the master has a house and garden, with £7 from a bequest, in addition to the fees, which average £15.
