VISITING THE RESERVE

How to get there

Directions

The reserve lies in the Nigg Valley in Easter Ross, about two miles north east of Hill of Fearn and four miles south east of Tain. From the A9, take the turning to Fearn. Turn left at the village towards Rhynie. The road bends and then straightens for just over 0.5 miles before turning sharply to the left. At this bend, ignore the gates to the house directly ahead and turn right down the rough track to the car park.
