One hundred years ago in January 1922 a ship called the Haio was wrecked off East Haven. The only surviving item from the ship was a compass. It was salvaged from the beach by one of the old fishermen and remains in the village today. This is just one of many stories that the community of East Haven will be telling through a collection of paintings created for Scotland’s Year of stories.
From Shore to Sea is a collection of paintings created for Scotland’s Year of Stories. Angus is rich in its cultural heritage, traditions as well as it’s natural landscape. The ancient fishing community of East Haven dates back to 1214 and has many tales to tell. Attached below is a video highlighting some of the stories that the community will be sharing during the Angus Year of Stories festival in July.
