Children's playground, The Links, Nairn

This postcard, entitled 'Children's playground, The Links, Nairn,' shows a view from the Links in Nairn, looking across the Children's Playground, to the Royal Marine Hotel. The close proximity of the hotel to the beach front would have made it a popular accommodation for tourists. The 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, in the late nineteenth century. The region's comparatively sunny climate, coupled with it being 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 Victorian era.
