A peninsula with Ross and Cromarty located in the Scottish Highlands is high on many visitors lists to travel to. Located close to the Black isle you will find many little villages including Culnokie, North Kessock, Muir of Ord, Munlochy and Avoch. These are perhaps villages many have never heard of before but they are not to be underestimated. The Black Isle is a relatively small settlement with around 12000 people living within its region.
If you head towards the North of the Black Isle you will be met with some of the most spectacular views of Dingwall, Invergordon and Fyrish. Headed to the South? You will see Inverness and the Monadhliath Mountains. The Black isle is connected by the Kessock Bridge so is very easily accessible over the Moray Firth.
Not to be forgotten but in 2012 the local dialect North Northern Scots was officially pronounced extinct when the last native speaker Bobby Hogg passed away. The area however remains to have a large Gaelic heritage and you will be almost guaranteed to meet someone who speaks it fluently. Rosemarkie is perhaps best known for its pictish stones. Some of these can be seen from Groam House Museum. The Kirkmicheal church is undergoing renovation to become a visitors centre so be sure to pop in and see how the work is developing when you are passing.
If you like your locally produced brews ensure you stop in at the only organic brewery in Scotland. The brewery opened in 1998 and they not only produce there own beer but all the barley, grain , fruit herbs and vegetables to go alongside it. You can come along and attend a tour gaining some of the history and appreciate the work that goes into every bottle. Take a sample back with you and enjoy whilst your tea is cooking on the BBQ provided in the motorhome.
