Fortrose

(3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: nature, golf, historic sites
Fortrose is a town and former burgh in the Scottish Highlands. It is on the Moray Firth, about 6mi north-east of Inverness. The town is known for its ruined 13th century cathedral, and as the home of the Brahan Seer. In the Middle Ages it was the seat of the bishopric of Ross. The Cathedral was largely demolished in the mid-seventeenth century by Oliver Cromwell to provide building materials for a citadel at Inverness. The vaulted south aisle, with bell-tower, and a detached chapter house remain. These fragments, though modest in scale, display considerable architectural refinement, and are in the care of Historic Scotland . The burgh is a popular location for trying to spot bottlenose dolphins in the Moray Firth.Fortrose shares a golf course with Rosemarkie. Set on the Chanonry Ness the course stretches out into the Moray Firth and offers good views of Fort George. The course is well known for its signature 4th Hole "Lighthouse". The lighthouse in question is the Chanonry Point lighthouse which was designed by Alan Stevenson and was first lit 15 May 1846.
