Fortrose Scotland HighlandsFortrose lies between Avoch and Rosemarkie on the A832 on the southern coast of the Black Isle. Many of the buildings are of an ornate Victorian style. Every year, a mediaeval fair, St. Boniface's Fair where all participants wear mediaeval costume, is held in this square with the Cathedral as a centrpiece. The surviving fragments of the cathedral consist of the 13th century vaulted undercroft of the chapter house and the south aisle of the nave, a vaulted structure of 14th century date, both finely worked, with two canopied monuments, and other interesting memorials.
