McFarquhar's Bed, Cromarty

This postcard from the early twentieth century shows McFarquhar's bed.

Situated on the Black Isle coast just south of Cromarty is this great stack of rock, with a fine arch hollowed out by coastal erosion. The building is a salmon fishing station. Nets are hanging out to dry.

One of the haunts of Hugh Miller, folklorist and geologist, the coast here is said to be the home of mermaids. The path down from the cliff top is still there but often overgrown and passable only with care
