Nigg Church and the Bishops' walk

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Nigg Church is well worth a visit to see the stunning Pictish carved cross-slab inside. The walk is a short one, looping down from the church to the shores of Nigg Bay along an ancient route by the burn. The Bishop of Ross is said to have sailed from his seat in the Black Isle to his summer holiday home at Nigg, coming ashore at Nigg Bay and using the path now known as the Bishops Walk.


Woodland paths, can be a little wet and overgrown in places.
