Boddam Harbour Barometer

Boddam Harbour Barometer was gifted by the 4th Earl of Aberdeen in the 1850's.  It was made by West 41 The Strand, Boddam barometerLondon and is sited on the wall of a cottage at the bottom of Queens Road. 

This barometer is housed inside a steel container which has done its job protecting this barometer well for more than 150 years.  Currently the main cover of the box is jammed shut with layers of paint, however the top flap still opens and you can read the temperature since mercury is still in the thermometer
