Tennis and Bowing Club, Fortrose

This photograph shows the tennis courts and bowling green in Castle Street, Fortrose.

The town of Fortrose is situated on the south coast of the Black Isle overlooking the Moray Firth. It grew up round its Cathedral, built in the 13th century when the Bishop of Ross moved there from Rosemarkie. The town was originally known as Chanonry, the Place of the Canons, because the canons of the cathedral lived in manses around the church.
