Postcard Rosemarkie High St. 1905
Picture added on 15 July 2010 at 23:11
Hugh Home’s general merchant’s store, which also doubled as the post office, was situated in the High Street, Rosemarkie. This photograph was taken around 1908. It is probable that the figure in the centre of the picture, holding the hand of the child, is Hugh Home himself and that the child is possibly Helen Bate Home, the daughter from his second marriage, who would have been aged about 5 years at the time the photograph was taken. The shop until recently was derelict and in a bad state of repair. It has now been restored for residential use. The building with its pillars and classical façade was built by John Stevenson, a general merchant, and who was Provost of Fortrose in 1837. At that time it was a large store selling rifles, furniture and watches. When this photograph was taken, the building on the left was being used as a garage. Today it serves as a butcher’s shop.
Alan Clater (descendant of Hugh Home).

My wife and I stayed here for our 25th wedding in 2009. We came to see the dolphins but very quickly fell in love with Rosemarkie. Been back every year since!
