Forrtrose from the Harbour

This postcard from 1919 shows Fortrose from the harbour.

At the beginning of the twentieth century open, sail-powered fishing boats were still very much in use. "Scaffies", "Fifies" and "Zulus" were all types of clinker built boats. "Scaffies" were particularly common in the Moray Firth.

The building on the right was a granary built in 1813 but which has now been converted in to a private house.

The sandstone tidal harbour 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 but had disappeared by the middle of the twentieth century.

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.

The club was revived in 1956 under the name "Chanonry Sailing Club". Today it is as an active club with a mixture of dinghies and cruisers and a busy calendar of events.
