Beginning at Avoch on the south side of the Black Isle, the route first follows the path of a now removed railway line to Fortrose (two miles). A short walk through the village then takes you to the path along the south shore of Chanonry Ness, to Chanonry Point. You then take the path along the beach on the north shore of Chanonry Ness nearly to Rosemarkie, thence cutting across the peninsula to rejoin the outward route. You can either do the complete walk - Avoch back to Avoch - or go on to Rosemarkie and take a bus back to Avoch, which would cut the walk to five miles. The path from Avoch to Fortrose can be muddy; no special footwear needed. Hope you see the dolphins.

Walked this walk in mid-May 2009 - very enjoyable walk, especially the first part along the old railway line with bluebells and wild garlic adding colour and scent to the close encounters with lots of birds. Did get to see a dolphin at Chanonry Point and a red kite. Many thanks, Bill and Daphne Baldry, Suffolk
