North Kessock  Ross and Cromarty


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described North Kessock like this:

Kessock, a ferry, 3 furlongs wide, between Inverness and Ross shires, across the strait between the Moray and Beauly Firths, opposite Inverness, under which there is a post office 'of Kessock. It is on the route from Inverness to Dingwall and Cromarty, and is one of the safest ferries in the north of Scotland. The view from the middle of the strait, particularly at high water, is exceedingly fine.—Ord. Sur., sh. 83, 1881.
