This map shows the entire Tarbat peninsula from Nigg Bay up to Tarbat at the point and round to the Dornoch Firth.

The seaboard villages of Shandwick, Balintore and Hilton played a major part in the herring fishing industry of the 19th century.

The area has a mild climate and is one of the driest places in Britain.
Until the beginning of the 20th century, Gaelic was the language which was generally spoken throughout the Tarbat peninsula.

These illustrations were taken from 'Down to the Sea' by Jessie MacDonald and Anne Gordon
