Old Montrose

"A royal burgh and sea port .... seated on a peninsula, formed by the South Esk river, a large expanse of water, called the Bason, fromed by that river and the German ocean. It is neatly built, consisitng of a fine spacious main street, with by lanes, and is justly accounted one of the first provincial towns for its size in Scotland, or perhaps i Great Britain .... The principle buildings are, the Old Townhouse, situated in the middle of the principle street, lately repaired as a prison. The New Townhouse is a neat low building , with piazzas below, and rooms for public business above. The parish church is a large new building, very elegantly finished, measruing 98 feet long by 65 over walls. The Episcopal Chapel, situated in the links, to the eastward of the town, is a neat building, with a fine organ. The Lunatic Hospital, also situated in the links, is a plain and commodious building, built in 1799, not only for the recption of lunatics, but also for the reception of indigent sick, or as a dispensary for the relief of out-patients .... The Harbour of Montrose is very commodious, admitting vessels of large burden; and, in the river below the town, there is safe anchorage. There is a wet and dry dock, for building and repairing ships. .... The parish of Montrose is about three miles long and two and a half miles broad, lying betwixt the mouths of the rivers North and South Esks, over each of which rivers there is a handsome bridge." (The Gazetteer of Scotland, W Chalmers, Dundee 1803)
