The Seaboard Villages are tiny villages which run along the coast and tumble one into another.
Ross and Cromarty is renowned for its varied landscape- hills and lochs, rocky shores and small villages. Every area has its own character. The Seaboard villages are no exception. They are famous for their sandy beaches, harbours and the Picts. Here you will find a thriving community with a good development group, a wonderful Pictish history and beautiful shore walks.
The harbour is busy and the people are friendly. A lovely place to stay and central to a lot of local history.
