"Really friendly folk and a cracking location for a night or six exploring the black isle"
N. TURTLE : April 15
The Black Isle is not only one of the most historic and the most beautiful areas of Scotland (in our opinion!). It is also one of the driest, sunniest parts of Scotland, famed for its micro-climate and, thankfully, its relative lack of midges!
We are just a 30 minute drive north of Inverness, the capital city of the Highlands of Scotland, near Fortrose and Rosemarkie.
If you are coming by public transport the number 26 bus service from Inverness brings you to Rosemarkie. From there you will have a walk of between 1 and 2 hours to reach Black Isle Yurts, depending on your levels of energy and fitness.
We are also conveniently placed near the official North Coast 500 route around the Highlands, and all tourers (cars, motorbikes, cycles) are welcome.
Once onto the Black Isle, take the main road (A832) in the direction of Cromarty.
After the villages of Fortrose and Rosemarkie, halfway up the Fairy Glen, take the first right which is signposted to 'Eathie'.
Follow the single track road for about 2km, until you see a wooden sign for 'Black Isle Yurts' and 'Hillockhead' on your right. Turn off here and follow the dirt track all the way down to the carpark at the end (past our barn) following signs for Black Isle Yurts.
Please do park in the carpark above the Hub unless you have special access requirements. In which case, please let us know and we will be more than happy to help.
Finally, don't trust your SAT NAV / GPS for the final approach. This may result in you ending up at the neighbouring farm (signposted 'Balmungie'), which is one turning too early!!!
