Rosemarkie High Street

This postcard shows the High Street at Rosemarkie in Ross-shire. Stone Age remains were once found underneath the site of the street, giving evidence of the village's ancient history. More than 12 Pictish stones were also found around the village churchyard suggesting the presence of a Pictish settlement during the 8th and 9th centuries. These stones can now be found at the Groam House Museum on the High Street.

Today, the High Street remains very much unchanged from the view given in the postcard, although many of the shops that used to exist on the street including bakeries, tea-rooms, shoe-makers and haberdasheries have now gone
