Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A one-way coastal route from Rosemarkie to Cromarty - the return can be made by public transport (check the times). The first half of the walk is a rough walk along the shoreline with much interest; the second half is mostly on very quiet roads with good views.


The shoreline section of the walk cannot be completed at high tide, and runs over tiring terrain - a mix of sand, rounded pebbles and rough boulders. The second section is mostly on quiet tarmac roads.
