The Moray Firth - An Introduction

 

The stretch of the Moray Firth where we sail is surrounded by places of historical and modern interest.  This is a must visit location if you're planning to visit the north of Scotland!

To the west you'll find the Beauly Firth and the town of Beauly, near the historical home of the Clan Fraser.  To the east there's Chanonry Point with its iconic lighthouse and views over to Fort George.  This is still a working military base, with a history that takes it back to the aftermath of the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, when it was built to prevent a repeat of the uprising.  You can still visit the regimental museum and walk around the fort.

To the north there's the Black Isle and on the southern shores you'll find the city of Inverness, the local airport and the championship standard golf course at Castle Stuart. In fact when the Scottish Open tournaments were televised, the commentators were often moved to comment about the natural beauty of the area.

At Inverness, the firth is crossed by the imposing Kessock Bridge - a suspension bridge constructed in the 1980's.  Of course, just a few miles away you'll also find Loch Ness, but without wishing to dampen the enthusiasm of any Nessie hunters reading this, you stand a much better chance of spotting a dolphin in the Moray Firth...
