With many islands and a complex coastline Scotland has traditionally relied a lot on sea travel, while fishing has been a key source of food.
The book is published to celebrate the 200th anniversary, on 11 February 2011, of the world's oldest rock lighthouse, the Bell Rock Lighthouse.
Covers the fishing history of the areas of north-east Scotland, the west coast, and Shetland.
