A Tarbat Discovery Centre local history resource

The Fearn Peninsula is the eastern part of the Scottish mainland between the Moray Firth and the Dornoch Firth.

The area is easily reached from the City of Inverness, capital of the Highlands; and rewards visitors with a suite of services to compliment its natural beauty.

Picturesque villages and outstanding beaches characterise this fertile region - its long associations with fishing and farming still evident today.

The area was a Pictish ceremonial landscape, as its many fine examples of carved stone testify; occupied by Norse settlers in more turbulent times; and variously the scene of early and enduring agricultural improvements, a cholera epidemic, a thriving sea-fishing industry, oil production, great sporting estates, the railway, lighthouses, marine ecology and community economic development.

Exploring the Fearn Peninsula is an enriching experience, from history and archaeology, genealogy, natural history, cultural pursuits and sporting activity, to relaxation in comfortable and friendly surroundings. By taking the time to visit this remarkably compact, yet diverse part of Scotland, with its open countryside, dramatic coastline and big skies, visitors invest in the capacity of the Fearn Peninsula to exceed expectations in the future.
