Our 48-page Summer edition cover features Rob Bashford who's set up an outdoor training business based in Fortrose – just one of several new ventures on the Black Isle.
We also talk to Peter Grant, the man behind PSG Antiques in Rosemarkie; Colin and Jane Dunn at gallery48 in Cromarty; and chef Paul Timson, happy to be beginning his third year at Crofters Bistro in Rosemarkie.
Looking back, we commemorate VE Day in Avoch, reveal the grisly truth about the Black Isle's Gallow Hills, and dig for the past in Cromarty; looking forward, we get ready for Chanonry Sailing Club's open day, learn the latest on plans for the centre of Culbokie, and prepare for the Edinburgh Fringe with Avoch playwright Phil Baarda.
We've a page of photos from Princess Anne's visit to Broomhill in Fortrose, news of an initiative to encourage tourism in the Black Isle, we talk to Dr Will Fraser who's retired after 35 years in Fortrose, and in the first of a new series we highlight some of the Munlochy Animal Aid residents looking for new homes.
There's more – we take a look at Fortrose Tennis Club, go felting with Groam House, learn about Rosemarkie Beach Cafe's watering can, and meet the modest man who's cared for the Old Railway Line for 10 years. And all for £1.50 – don't miss your copy!
