Rossie

   ROSSIE, or Inch-Brayock, an island, in the parish of Craig, county of Forfar; containing 152 inhabitants. This is a small isle, at the mouth of the South Esk, near Montrose, with which place it is connected on the north by a magnificent suspension-bridge; and on the southern side is a drawbridge, allowing a free navigation at high-water in the basin of Montrose for vessels of moderate burthen. The island is now included within the burgh of Montrose by the boundary act, and will, in a few years, become a suburban appendage to that town. On the east point of Rossie is a drydock. Here was anciently the parochial church; hence the name Inch-Brayock, in the Gaelic Inis Breic, the "Church or Chapel Island." The spot is still occupied as the parish burial-place.
