Around Ross-shire

Out & About

Situated in the small village of Inver, close to the Royal Burgh of Tain (north of Inverness), this area boasts of a warm climate with the highest sunshine and lowest rainfall in Scotland. These are fantastic attributes when you consider the amount of outdoor activities to be enjoyed in the area – fishing, windsurfing, sailing, walking, golfing, horse trekking and wild-fowling to name a few. For those less energetic there are a whole host of visitor attractions to experience, as well as distinguished towns, villages, occupied castles and beautiful beaches to explore.

Being so close to the sea is an added bonus. The Cromarty and Moray Firths surrounding the peninsula can lead to many wildlife discoveries – the waters around here are particularly noted for the regular sightings of dolphins and you can take dolphin watching trips for a truly exciting experience.

5 local courses to choose from – The Carnegie, Royal Dornoch, Tain & Tarbat.
