Nigg Bay Cranes
Brown and Root Wimpey, AKA Highlands Fabricators, at Nigg, Easter Ross had these two immense pedestal cranes for many years.
Built by American Hoist they were named Big Wolf and Little Wolf.
I have another image, buried in the archives, of them during dismantling by the site's Lampson Transilift.
My grandmother's family had the crofts across the road and I spent many happy summers on the amazing foreshore which became burried when the rig yard and the oil terminal were built on reclaimed land.
