Hopeman is nearly as large as Burghead, as is shown by its population, which in
1861 was 1073. From Burghead, it is about two miles to the east. It is the property
of Thomas Duff Gordon Duff of Hopeman, and has a neat harbour, which accommo-
dates a large fishing, and also the shipping of the port, which is not, however, exten-
sive. The rapid increase of the population and trade of the town is mainly attributable
to the success of the herring fishing, the average catch at Hopeman having for years
past been the highest on this part of the coast.
