Dingwall Canal and Old Harbour looking towards the Black Isle

This photograph shows a view of Dingwall Canal and Old Harbour, looking towards the Black Isle. The canal was built in 1815, and ran from the town of Dingwall to the Cromarty Firth. Designed by Thomas Telford, the celebrated Scottish engineer, it is the most northerly canal in Britain. After the arrival of the railway in Dingwall in 1863, the canal lost most of its traffic, and it fell into disuse by 1890.
