The royal burgh of Tain is located in the Ross and Cromarty area of the Scottish Highland. Tain is Scotland's oldest Royal Burgh having received their first royal charter in 1066. To commemorate this event in 1966, 900 years after they received the charter, the Rose Garden was opened by the Queen Mother herself. Prior to receiving the royal charter little is known of its history. There is belief that the town owed much of its importance to the early Christian figure Duthac whose shrine was considered very important by the time of the charter. Today there are many areas in and around Tain that are interesting to visitors.
