You are only 10 miles from the transmitter and should be getting good reception. There are no known fault at present with the Rosemarkie transmitter but some enh=gineering work has been done recently, mainly from early July.
Please would you check all the connections between your TV set and the aerial. The contacts of plugs and sockets are a well known source of such problems. Also check what the signal strength is for each of the multiplexes. That should idealy be between 60% and 85%, no more and no less. If it is more then you have too much signal and need an attentuator. If it is less then you need to investigate why within the aerial system.
Incidentally, this website is not the way to contact the engineers who maintain the over 1100 transmitters around the UK. They are all operated by Arqiva, who can be contacted via https://www.arqiva.com/contact-us/.
