The harbour at Fortrose

The sandstone tidal harbour at Fortrose was built by Thomas Telford in 1817 at a cost of £4,000. Some of this money came from the residual funds of the Commissioners of the Forfeited Estates. A wooden pier was added in 1879.

In the later 19th century, an annual regatta was held in Fortrose Bay during August, with sailing, rowing and swimming competitions. The Chanonry Boating Club developed from these regattas until suspending its operations at the start of World War I
