Highland | Village | ★★


Rosemarkie doesn't even come close to being the largest settlement on the Black Isle - in fact, even neighbouring Fortrose is much bigger. But we think it's probably the best looking village on the peninsula, with apologies to almost-as-lovely Cromarty. This well-kept fishing settlement has a particularly attractive High Street (it's easy to forget that it's an A-road), beach with an outlook across the Moray Firth, local museum and excellent nearby walks; in short, there's all you could hope for from a village of this size. The UK's best location for sighting dolphins from land - Chanonry Point - is a mile south around the coast.
