This detailed map of the Black Isle is taken from Angus J Beaton's 'Illustrated Guide to Fortrose and Vicinity, with an appendix on the Antiquities of the Black Isle', published in Inverness in 1885.

It is interesting to note the various ferry services which existed at that time, i.e. Alcaig to Dingwall, Balblair to Invergordon, Cromarty to Dunskeath, Chanonry Point to Fort George, Fortrose to Inverness and North Kessock to South Kessock. The only route still in existence today is the Cromarty to Nigg ferry, run by the Cromarty Ferry Company
