After an amazing week in Poolewe we decided to head over to Rosemarkie which is a village on the south coast of the Black Isle peninsula in Ross-shire, northern Scotland.
It lies a quarter of a mile east of the town of Fortrose. The pair make up the Royal Burgh Of Fortrose and Rosemarkie, situated either side of the Chanonry Ness promontory, about twelve miles north-east of Inverness.
Rosemarkie fronts on a wide, picturesque bay, with views of Fort George and the Moray coastline across the Moray Firth. Rosemarkie has one of the finest beaches on the Moray Firth Coast Line. At the southern end of the beach is Chanonry Point, reputed to be the best location on the United Kingdom mainland from which to see Bottlenose dolphins.
We first heard of this place during our time working at Poolewe. Many campers would arrive having visited this place or would be heading there after leaving us for the reasons above. We decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. It is on our list of places to visit again in the future.
We stayed on the Rosemarkie Camping and caravanning club site right on the edge of the beach.
