View of The Black Isle

This postcard shows a view of North Kessock, on the Black Isle.

The Black Isle is not an island as its name suggests but is a peninsula. It is surrounded by the Cromarty Firth to the North, the Beauly Firth to the South and the Moray Firth to the east. The peninsula is within close distance to Inverness and is linked to the Highland Capital by the Kessock Bridge. Previous to the bridge being opened in 1982, a ferry ran between North Kessock and Inverness
