Tarbat Ness - a great place to visit in almost any weather. The forecast for the day was sunny spells, showers and a bracing Force 4 to 5 so a morning trip was definitely in order.

Tarbat Ness has a number of distinctions. The meeting point of the Moray Firth and the Dornoch Firth, the lighthouse warns shipping of the headland. Built is 1830, the lighthouse is a Stevenson lighthouse and, at 53m high, is the third tallest lighthouse in the UK. Tarbat Ness also has the claim to being the driest place in Scotland, whilst just down the road, Inver is one of the few (the only?) east coast beach to face west.

A selection of photographs from the morning are presented below demonstrating the power of the sea and the quality of the light.
