Sandhaven (Pitullie) Harbour Barometer

Sandhaven (Pitullie) Barometer Box. (S. Bruce 10 Nov 2012).A little to the west of the former Forbes Boat-yard at Sandhaven Harbour is the barometer housing.  Unfortunately the housing no longer has the barometer nor does it have a door.

 According to Vice-Admiral Robert Fitzroy's report of The Meteorologic Office of The Board of Trade dated April 1863, the Sandhaven Barometer was "Useful; Generally understood, and there had been no important gale without warning".
