About the location

MUIR OF ORD

Beauly 2.5 miles.

The small Highland village of Muir of Ord lies close to the Beauly Firth and is conveniently situated for easy access to towns such as Beauly, Dingwall and the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness, some 10 miles to the east. Another major attraction is the Glen Ord Distillery and Visitor Centre, a 5 star award-winning visitor experience, which is open all the year round and well worth a visit. Muir of Ord has a pretty high street and good hotels, and just a few miles away the town of Beauly offers a quality shopping experience where visitors can find the finest Scottish tweeds, knitwear and crafts as well as smart boutiques and intimate restaurants. The whole area known as ‘The Black Isle’ has some of the prettiest scenery in Scotland with stunning glens where flora and fauna abound. Glen Affric, a National Nature Reserve, has been called the most beautiful of all the Scottish glens, and is an ideal location for walkers and cyclists with quiet tracks leading you off road and deep into the glen.
