Eathie coast

near Rosemarkie

This is a short walk providing historical, geological and wildlife interest. In good weather the mid point of the walk is a great place to picnic and gaze over the clear water in search of dolphins. In bad weather the bothy, now a small interpretative centre about the salmon station and Hugh Miller, provides good shelter.

Terrain - Easy to follow and well-maintained path to the shore with some steep sections. The coastal section is through long grass or at low tide the route can be followed on the pebbly shore.
