Harbour street drinking fountain, Portmahomack

The fountain was erected to celebrate the arrival of piped drinking water to the town in 1887. It was presented by Peter MacDonald, a native of Portmahomack and a "rectifier and wine merchant" in Glasgow. It was opened in 1892 with full Masonic honours in front of a large crowd.
