In the late 20th and very early 21st century the name “Nigg” is synonymous with that of the oil industry. The photos relating to this in the photo album illustrate the huge amount of work necessary to develop the area.

Welcome to this collection of photographs from Nigg Parish. The originals are held by Mrs Liz Whiteford. The photographs were presented in three albums on the original RCHS website, but as the topics are similar in each album it has been decided to amalgamate them into related groups.  All of the photographs can be viewed in the  Nigg Libraries page of this website.  However, we have included the work related photographs on this page.
