The Fearn Peninsula is the eastern part of the Scottish mainland between the Moray
Firth and the Dornoch Firth.
The area is easily reached from the City of Inverness, capital of the Highlands;
and rewards visitors with a suite of services to compliment its natural beauty.
Picturesque villages and outstanding beaches characterise this fertile region - its
long associations with fishing and farming still evident today.
The area was a Pictish ceremonial landscape, as its many fine examples of carved
stone testify; occupied by Norse settlers in more turbulent times; and variously
the scene of early and enduring agricultural improvements, a cholera epidemic, a
thriving sea-fish industry, oil production, great sporting estates, the railway,
lighthouses, marine ecology and community economic development.
Exploring the Fearn Peninsula is an enriching experience, from history and archaeology,
genealogy, natural history, cultural pursuits and sporting activity, to relaxation
in comfortable and friendly surroundings. By taking the time to visit this remarkably
compact, yet diverse part of Scotland, with its open countryside, dramatic coastline
and big skies, visitors invest in the capacity of the Fearn Peninsula to exceed expectations
in the future.
