Visit Avoch and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Avoch, Highland, is now a small fishing community on the South shore of the Black Isle with a harbour, mostly for fishing vessels.
Just to the South West on a mound are the ruins of Ormond Castle, said to be the home of Andrew de Moray with whom William Wallace led the Scots to victory at Stirling Bridge in 1297.
Farther to the North West is the site of Rosehaugh. This was once the seat of Sir George Mackenzie, commonly known as “Bluidy Mackenzie” for his harsh treatment of the Covenanters when he was Lord Advocate in the latter half of the 17th century. A large, ornate house was built in 1893 on this site for James Fletcher, son of a fisherman of Avoch who had made a fortune in the South. It was demolished in July 1959.
