Marine House Care Home, Rosemarkie

The Marine Hotel in Rosemarkie on the Black Isle is a late Victorian Italianate villa, much altered and extended since it was first built. It is now a nursing home.

Rosemarkie was an important centre of the early Pictish church. A church at Rosemarkie, initially associated with Saint Moluag (d.592), was reinvigorated in the eighth century by Saint Curetán, known also as Saint Boniface. Rosemarkie's significance as a hub of Pictish culture is evidenced by the collection of Pictish carved stones discovered in and near to the village churchyard. These finds are now exhibited in Groam House Museum, Rosemarkie.

In 1124, the first cathedral of the diocese of Ross was established in Rosemarkie by David I of Scotland. In the mid-thirteenth century a new cathedral was built in Fortrose and the site of the cathedral church of Ross moved there. The present Parish Church at Rosemarkie was built in 1821 on the site of the original cathedral church.

Rosemarkie was created a Royal Burgh in the early thirteenth century and shared Royal Burgh status with Fortrose from 1455.
