The Cromarty Sutors, (evening) Nairn

This postcard shows two figures, possible a couple, gazing out at twilight from Nairn Beach towards the Cromarty Sutors. A paddle boat can be seen behind the figures, and a another couple of people are located further up the beach.

Once described as the 'Brighton of Scotland,' Nairn was a popular beach resort during Victorian times. The region's comparatively sunny climate, coupled with possessing a convenient stop on the Inverness and Nairn Railway, meant that the resort attracted visitors from all over the country. The town was at its wealthiest during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.
