There’s a great choice of routes from Cromarty. It is an ideal starting point for easy cycling along the northern shores of the Black Isle, or across the firth and the Seaboard villages if you fancy to take the ferry (June – October).
You can use our cycle route planner and downloadable cycle routes to plan your expeditions. or
You can head up from Cromarty on the back road to Eathie and then on to the Fairy Glen, Rosemarkie and Chanonry Point and its famous pod of bottlenose dolphins. You could explore the villages of Fortrose and Avoch which are linked by the traffic-free path along the old railway line. If you are feeling adventurous there are the MTB trails of Learnie Red Rocks. Or simply explore the miles of quiet roads and forest tracks.
The Cheese House is an authentic Dutch cheese shop – so cycling is in our blood. You are welcome to relax in our garden with tea/coffee and Dutch apple cake, either before you set off or on your return. We can also provide lots of friendly advice and local knowledge.
