Stranathro

   STRANATHRO, a village, in the parish of Fetteresso, county of Kincardine, 3 miles (S. W. by S.) from Stonehaven; containing 126 inhabitants. This village is situated on the eastern coast, and is inhabited partly by persons employed in the fisheries off this part, in which four boats, each having a crew of five men, are generally engaged. During the season the men are also occupied in the herring-fishery, which is carried on with success. A coast-guard station has been established here. The harbour, though small, is commodious, and affords safe shelter for craft. The coastroad from Aberdeen to Stonehaven passes by the village.
