Views of Rosemarkie

This postcard shows several views of the village of Rosemarkie in Ross-shire. In the centre of the postcard is shown Rosemarkie golf course. Founded by James Braid in 1888, the course was built at Chanonry Point (top left) on the promontory leading out to Rosemarkie lighthouse. The road to the lighthouse splits the course in two. Chanonry Point has the reputation of being the location where 'The Brahan Seer', a famous Highland prophet accused of witchcraft, was burned to death in a barrel of boiling tar.

The tennis courts (bottom right) are situated at Rosemarkie beach (top right) and contribute to the facilities that Rosemarkie offers to tourists during the summer months. The waterfall (bottom left) is one of two falls found at the Fairy Glen in Rosemarkie. The Markie Burn flows through the glen that is now partially managed by the RSPB
