The Trinkie, generations will recall sunlit hours spent in this place where the young - and not so young - enjoyed themselves, oblivious to the temperature of the bitterly cold North Sea.

[Gillian Peebles (nee Harper)contributed the following:-
"My late father Dr William Farquharson Harper (Bill) (1916 - 2009) used to reminisce fondly about swimming in the Trinkie. Dad swam well and was also an excellent tennis player. He was the middle son of Provost John Harper. His elder brother was James Frederick always known in the family as Fred and younger brother Norman. He had two younger sisters Isobel and Alison. Dad's favourite Trinkie story was of a boyhood friend, but less good swimmer, John (Jack) George being pulled out to the middle on his back and left to swim in circles. Jack George went on to have a career as a highly respected Edinburgh lawyer."
