The call of the seaside, Nairn

This postcard, entitled 'The call of the seaside, Nairn,' shows visitors paddling and entertaining themselves on the beach at Nairn, Morayshire. The Links and the Royal Marine Hotel can be seen in the background. This hotel has since been demolished to make way for flats.

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.
