Eathie coast, near Rosemarkie

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This is a short walk providing historical, geological and wildlife interest. In good weather the mid point of the walk is a great place to picnic and gaze over the clear water in search of dolphins. In bad weather the bothy, now a small interpretative centre about the salmon station and Hugh Miller, provides good shelter.


Easy to follow and well-maintained path to the shore with some steep sections. The coastal section is through long grass or at low tide the route can be followed on the pebbly shore.

Public Transport

None to start.


Small car park with information board on the right side of the minor Black Isle coast road from Rosemarkie to Cromarty. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
