PORTPATRICK

HISTORY

Back
Portpatrick Harbour at the time of filming Hunted (1952 ). Hunted starred Dirk Bogarde as a man on the run, and had the US title The Stranger In Between. The fishing boats are the "ring netters" of the Clyde fleet which landed huge catches of herring from around the Isle of Man and the North Channel during the 'fifties.
