Route Description

Known as the capital of the Highlands, Inverness sits at the mouth of the River Ness and the junction of the Beauly Firth and the Moray Firth. This route takes you from the centre of Inverness to the market town of Dingwall using a mixture of roads and cycle paths. Along the way, you will cross the Kessock Bridge and take in the rolling landscape, seascapes and open skies of the Black Isle.

The route also passes the Black Isle Brewery at Munlochy and the Seal and Dolphin Centre at North Kessock - one of the best places in Europe to observe dolphins and seals in their natural habitat. At Maryburgh, the route crosses the River Conon on a bridge build by Thomas Telford. Look out for red kites which are often seen circling overhead here.
