Easter Ross Peninsula

The Easter Ross Peninsula is swimming in history, surrounded by three firths, magnificent beaches and the North Sea – home to dolphins and whales alike, wide-open skies and unspoilt countryside full of walks and trails. It really is a haven for explorers. 

Our vision is to promote the Easter Ross Peninsula, as a unique tourist destination. Bringing people and places closer together, maximising community assets in order to boost the local economy, training and youth employment opportunities – creating a long-lasting legacy for the area which includes: Tain, Hill of Fearn, Inver, Portmahomack, Kilmuir, Logie Easter, Nigg, Edderton  and the seaboard villages of Shandwick, Balintore and Hilton.

The peninsula is flowing in Pictish history, walks and trails, it’s home to the Clan Ross Centre, the oldest Royal Burgh in Scotland and the mythical Mermaid of the North.  It’s a place you can drink in the scenery whilst sipping a locally distilled single malt Glenmorangie whisky, or if your tipple is gin, we have local distillers here too.

Explore the Peninsula and find the perfect spot inland, or on one of our magnificent beaches, to watch the Northern Lights or just relax under a blanket of unlimited starry skies. If you are lucky you can hear the haunting sounds of the Gizzen Briggs’ fairies, weaving ropes of sand across the Dornoch Firth.

Bring your clubs and tee off on our champion length links at Tain Golf Club or take a swing on the 9 hole course at Portmahomack Golf club. Both Links courses offer amazing experiences of sea and mountain views on each side.

Stay with us, enjoy our hospitality and become a temporary local whilst you visit. 

The Easter Ross Peninsula is the perfect place to base yourself for trips anywhere in the North of Scotland, just off the NC500 route it’s a haven to be explored.
