View of the 'Channery Town of Ross', 1693

This illustration depicts 'The Channery Town of Ross' (Fortrose) as it was in 1693. It appears in 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.

The ancient name for the burgh of Fortrose was 'Chanonrie of Rose' and it was united to the Burgh of Rosemarkie in 1455 by a charter from King James II, thus creating the Royal Burgh of Fortrose and Rosemarkie.

Fortrose Cathedral can be seen in the centre of the picture, obviously in a much better state of repair than it is today
