Invergordon is located on the Cromarty Firth north-shore and boasts stunning views towards the western Beins and Black Isle.
The shoreline road (B817) to Invergordon forms part of the historic Pictish Trail and the Ross and Cromarty Naval Trail both of which are a welcoming and less travelled detour off the A9 trunk road and Moray Firth Tourist Route.
The wetlands and waters of the Cromarty Firth are home to Oystercatchers, Heron and a myriad of other waders. The RSPB has Reserves at Nigg and Udale bay.
Buzzards and Hawks can often be sighted on the B817 shore road, from where you may also be lucky to spot seals in the Firth and migrating flocks, high in the sky.
The forestry wilderness areas above Invergordon are home to Red Squirrels, Pine Martens, Deer, Owls, Grouse and the elusive Capercaillie
