There's another packed 48 pages in the Summer edition of Black Isle Chatterbox, which on the cover features Rachel and Mike Brown – the new team in charge at Fortrose Bay Campsite.

Still in Fortrose, we join Chanonry Sailing Club's diamond anniversary, look back with Jean Fowler at the ferry crossings to Inverness, and meet Bill and Brenda Martin, who may have the Black Isle's first all-electric car.

In Cromarty we prepare for the Art and Flower Festival and share photos taken during another successful year at Cromarty Camera Club.

Avoch Friendship Club has received an award – we find out all about it – and bid farewell to John Marker, the village minister who's got new plans for the future.

In Culbokie we meet some rising badminton stars and the new faces at Findon Hall, while in Munlochy they're getting over a fundraising 24-hour ceilidh.

Groam House in Rosemarkie is creating illuminated manuscripts inspired by George Bain's Celtic art. We highlight Thomas Keyes, the artist who's producing the work. Still in the village, we look back at railways and old Rosemarkie with Betty Forrester.

Skiff fever is sweeping the Black Isle so we take a look at the clubs preparing for a busy summer.

Plus, a recipe from Sutor Creek, news from Fortrose Academy and Munlochy Animal Aid, the prize crossword and much more news, features and sport. And we're still only £1.50. How can you resist?
