Eathie Burn, Cromarty

This postcard from the early twentieth century shows Eathie Burn, Cromarty.

Situated a few miles south of Cromarty on the border between the parishes of Cromarty and Rosemarkie, the stream tumbles through a rocky ravine to the shore of the Moray Firth. This was one of the haunts of Hugh Miller, stonemason and folklorist. Here he first discovered fish fossils in the Jurassic shale beds. His interest led to serious study and fame as an eminent geologist.
