The Fearn Peninsula, Easter Ross

This is the area of flat fertile farmland lying to the north of Invergordon and to the east of Tain. There is a small coastal hill range on its east-facing coast with cliffs and a coastal walk. There are sandy beaches at Balintore (Shandwick Bay), Hilton of Cadboll, Portmahomack and Nigg from where there is a summer ferry to the quaint village of Cromarty. It is also a major area for the Pictish Trail and there is a Pictish museum and archaelogical dig at Portmahomack.

The Fearn Peninsula has a remarkably dry climate, with one of the lowest annual rainfall levels in Britain! There is a network of flat and gently undulating roads, making it an ideal area for cycling. There is a railway station at Fearn.
