Draughts and putting green, Nairn

This postcard, entitled 'Draughts and Putting Green, Nairn,' shows a scene of leisure on the Nairn coastline, in Morayshire. In the foreground, a game of draughts is being undertaken, with others looking on, while in the background golfers are seen practicing their putting.

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
