      Boddam is not actually in Peterhead but lies about 2-3 miles south. It is distinctly separate from the Blue Toon.

      Inhabitants of Peterhead (the Blue Toon) are called bluemogganers as the fisher folk used to wear blue socks or moggans. So you see, Peterhead folk are the original Blue Stockings!
