BEST OF THE BLACK ISLE
You leave Inverness behind and head straight for the brewery. Tasting beer before noon may feel improper, but the Black Isle Brewery’s ethical beliefs and home-grown flavours will ensure you feel great about it. After you’ve soaked up the local flavours, you take the short drive to Rosemarkie. This wonderful wee village offers you a chance to learn about ancient Pictish art and take in fresh sea views. The journey then takes you to the equally picturesque village of Cromarty. There are plenty of things to do here. You can eat at a local restaurant, go shopping in the delightful arts and crafts shop, or visit the birthplace of the famous geologist, Hugh Millar.
Your next stop is an example of a strange, ancient Celtic tradition. It’s a small well in a forest where people leave offerings for spirits, gods, and wishes. You can leave something yourself, but please make sure it’s biodegradable and doesn’t damage the local environment.
Before heading back to Inverness, you have a chance to go dolphin spotting with ‘Dolphin Spirit’. Their boat is specially designed to limit disruption for the dolphins, the friendly guides tell you incredible facts about the wildlife, and the dolphins are active and use the beautiful firth as a nursery for their calves. It’s an essential Black Isle experience; but if you have other plans, you can skip this option, and we’ll take you back to Inverness earlier.
