site is dedicated to the brave fishermen of Whinnyfold. Whinnyfold
is a tiny fishing village situated two miles from Cruden Bay
in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. One of those fishermen was my Great
Grandfather who, with the others, risked their lives to save
the crew of the "SS Xenia" on 1st February 1903 in
a North-Westerly Gale of wind. This
is the dramatic story of that rescue.
