Situated away from the hustle and bustle of the city, there is a picturesque small fishing village named Footdee or Fittie. Built in mid 19th century and designed by John Smith, the striking feature of this village is the cottages which are square in shape, low at height and inwardly faced, with backs faced towards the ocean. It was done in such a way so as to save the cottage and the inhabitants from the storm. Previously the cottages were the residence of the fishermen and their fisherfolk families. However, at present only few of the fishermen stay in this village and thus the region has become inactive with fishing occupation. When you visit the village, you can still see women sitting and repairing nets while having good gossip amongst themselves. Take a walk through the paths of the village; you will come across some beautiful gardens as well. Speak with the fishermen and you might come across some interesting stories of their life.
