Hawkhill Marine Hotel
THIS new Hotel, three quarters of a-mile from Fortrose Station,
was originally the Mansion House of Hawkhill. a finely
finished building in the Italian style, to which has just been
added an extensive range of Bedrooms and Sitting Rooms, while the
House itself has been altered internally to meet the public require-
ments of a first-class Family Hotel. Situated on one of the finest parts
of the Northern shore of the Moray Firth, immediately opposite Fort-
George, and with a fall southern aspect, it presents a landscape un-
equalled in the North, and the facilities for Sea Bathing are unique.
The district is one of the acknowledged health resorts of Scotland. In
the immediate neighbourhood are the romantic glades of Fairy Glen
and St Helena, and to the east, along the sea shore, are the rugged
Avater-worn cliffs of Old Red Sandstone and the famous Eathie Burn, no
ably described by Hugh Miller, whose birthplace is Avithin twelve miles

Peninsula of Chanonry, on which is laid out a magnificent Golf

noble Cathedral, are but three quarters of a-mile away. Grand views of
vastly different character are to be got from the Hill of Fortrose in rear
of the Hotel, and the surrounding country abounds in pleasant walking^
