The Piano Rock on Rosemarkie Beach

Does anyone from Rosemarkie remember playing 'the Piano' 'rock? These are at the top end of the High, not far from the Tuback. The 'stool' is a lump of erratic granite, dumped there by a glacier 13,000 years ago. The orangey-red 'piano' is far older, 400 million years to be precise, incredibly hard crystalline granite created when the Great Glen was formed. There's a lot more sand today but you can still just see the 'stool'.

Anyone got any old family photos of wee ones playing on this rock?! It would be good to see how the sand levels have changed through time. Encourage your wee ones to continue the tradition and play the piano...
