The Ross and Cromarty region

Inverness & Northern Highlands.

Inverness, the Highland capital is at the mouth of the river Ness, and has all the facilities of a modern, fast growing city.

The Northern Highlands is a beautiful and inspiring region of ancient landscapes and fascinating history; from magnificent mountains to grand sea lochs and gorgeous beaches you will find it all here. Discover eye-catching wildlife, a rich and vibrant culture, iconic castles, and a never ending list of amazing outdoor activities, all set against world renowned landscapes such as Ben Nevis, and Loch Ness.

The Black Isle

The Black Isle is a fertile peninsular, joined by a bridge to Inverness, and bordered by the Moray, Cromarty, and Beauly Firths. It is so named because of its rich, dark, agricultural land and mild climate.

The Black Isle has many picturesque villages reflecting its heritage of fishing, and agriculture. Fortrose has a ruined cathedral, a golf course, and from its lighthouse the famous school of Moray Firth dolphins can be seen daily passing its headland. Avoch is a conservation fishing village, with a 19th century harbour, and quaint fisherman's cottages. Cromarty, a fishing village (once an important sea port) stands at the head of the peninsular, which it guards with its' "Sutors". Rosemarkie has a superb sandy beach set in a lovely bay surrounded by attractive rocks, and cliffs.

A network of walking and cycle trails on the Black Isle pass through open moorland, forests, and along shores with wonderful views, and gives you the opportunity to view the diverse wild life of the area.
