Rossie Island, or Inchbraoch, is separated from the town by the River South Esk. It occupies on a former island, now attached on its southern side. It provides a staging point for both the A92 trunk road and railway to enter Montrose from the south.

The surname Scott appears in the 12th century and derives from the Anglo Scottish border and its medieval border clans. Scott is one of the twelve most common surnames in Scotland. The Scott's clan were one of the most powerful of the Riding Clans of the Scottish borders and rose to power in the turbulent, often violent region, where they conducted fierce raids and battles with neighbouring clans.
