Hi there,

I am contacting you from the TV Production company, IWC Media in Glasgow.
We are currently making the programme, Secret Scotland for Channel 5.

We are covering a story about the Whaligoe steps and the herring trade and would love to use this image.

Can you please let me know who owns this image and if you have an original copy?

Thank you,
