Comments:
This picture shows the ferry slip at Invergordon, not a Pier. It appears that temporary wooden railings have been erected on each side to safeguard the visitors and hosts.
I was told that the stone the King stepped on as he came ashore had been engraved, but suspect that may have been a ploy to get me to scrape the weed off the slipway as I searched in vain. We will never know now if the engraving existed, the slipway has been swallowed up by port development.

I could never find it neither Ronald, just a couple of metal rings in the stone for mooring.
Spent hours there picking winkles then boiling them in a can on the beach (or what we called the beach)
