A plan of the Royal Burgh of Fortrose with the proposed extension of Burgh boundaries in 1949.

The Royal Burgh of Fortrose is found on the Black Isle overlooking the Moray Firth. It is most well known for its 13th Century Cathedral. The Cathedral is now a ruin. It is the former seat of the Bishopric of Ross and was granted Royal Burgh status in 1590. It is separated from neighbouring Rosemarkie by Chanonry Point which is a popular spot for watching the bottlenose dolphins who are resident in the Moray Firth.
