(3.7/5 based on 200 reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: wildlife areas
North Kessock is a village on the Black Isle north of Inverness.DescriptionNorth Kessock is the first village encountered over the Kessock Bridge. Now by-passed by the main road to the north (the A9), the village remains quiet. Its counterpart across the Beauly Firth, South Kessock, is a district of Inverness.HistoryNorth Kessock probably existed as early as 1437, when the Dominican monastery in Inverness was granted a charter to operate a ferry to the Black Isle. This was on the pilgrim route north to St Duthac Church in Tain.The Kessock Ferry connected North and South Kessock until 1982, when the Kessock Bridge was completed and opened.WildlifeNorth Kessock is a famous spot for watching bottlenose dolphins, which are resident in the Moray Firth - indeed they are the most northerly group of bottlenose dolphins in the world. The Dolphin and Seal Centre, just north of the village (off the A9 road), is run by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. It is located in the Tourist Information car park, north of the Kessock bridge off the A9. The charity also runs the Wildlife Centre at Spey Bay.
