Harbour view


I am surprised that while you mention Highland Harbours you do not credit Tobermory, Ullapool and Wick as special instances (NCE 11 January).

Telford offered advice to the two former 'new towns' created by the Fisheries Society, but in the case of Wick, he was responsible for the complete town plan - a new settlement named Pultneytown south of the harbour.

Pultneytown was largely destroyed on architectural advice to Wick Corporation in 1971, but fascinating fragments remain.
