Fortrose Cathedral is lovely ad very quiet. Located in the village of Fortrose, not may people visit and it's quite.

The ruins and grounds are very well kept and peaceful and there is a good amount of information about the building and its history on the boards which surround it. It's a shame that one can't actually get inside what's left of the church - particularly as there are some fascinating monuments inside, visible through the railings, which aren't explained. I wished I'd brought a pair of binoculars to have a better view of them. If you go on to Rosemarkie there's a helpful leaflet available which explains things in greater detail - but not, alas, the monument showing two chained slaves which particularly intrigued us.

We had a picnic nearby Fortrose Cathedral after visiting Chanonry Point and while IMO it doesn't justify a trip to Fortrose, its worth a quick stop.
