Letter from Elizabeth Rose, Kilravock Castle, to Isabella Baillie, Edinburgh, page 3

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is dated 4 August 1812. It is a letter from Elizabeth Rose of Kilravock Castle to Isabella Baillie, Edinburgh. In it, Elizabeth brings Isabella up to date with local news and family matters. She also mentions Archibald (one of Isabella's sons) who has recently been unwell. As part of his convalescence he has been bathing in the sea.

Sea bathing and paddling became popular from the end of the 18th century onwards. People believed that sea-water and sea-air was beneficial for all sorts of diseases and medical conditions
