SUE JANE TAYLOR

“I had always been aware of the oil industry in Scotland, it was part of contemporary Highland culture. I was born on the Black Isle and whilst growing up there in the 1970s the oil boom hit the Highlands of Scotland. Nigg and Ardersier construction yards flanked the Black Isle. I witnessed the radical changes to the area and the changes it made to peoples’ lives there, both positive and negative.”
