|Walk No. 46||When: 05 Jul 2006||From: Invergordon||To: Nigg Ferry|
NEW : See my campaign to establish a National Coastal Path here
This walk follows a B Road all the way around Nigg Bay till you get to Nigg Ferry. I wouldnt be tempted to walk across Nigg Bay when the tide is out as it is a large bay and it is very muddy. Follow the B road through Saltburn until you reach Milton then join the A9 for a couple of hundred yards and cross the road to get to the B road that leads to Arabella. Follow the road to Araballa till it meets the B9175 which you walk along all the way to Nigg Ferry.A fairly long and pretty monotonous road along the northern end of Nigg Bay. Eventually you reach Nigg Ferry and look across at Cromarty which at most is about half a mile away as the crow swims. Thats when I needed all my resolve not to think that this was a stupid way to pass the time, (which of course it is). Walking around 36 miles of Estuary to get to a point half a mile away by ferry. Still, its exercise and although I will probably neverbe back here, it was good to visit a part of Scotland I have never been to before.
