Fortrose on the Black Isle, looking towards Inverness

This illustration of Fortrose 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.

According to Beaton, Fortrose at this time was 'picturesquely situated on the shores of the Moray Firth, which from its romantic position possesses many charms for the tourist and pleasure seeker, while its salubrious climate should attract those desirous of imparting the ruddy glow of health to the pallid cheek'. These sentiments still apply today as Fortrose is a popular destination for tourists. Many visitors come to play golf on the links or watch the bottlenose dolphins at Chanonry Point
