The North Kessock Pier is a historic crossing point on the East coast of Scotland. It provided a crucial service for local communities and access to the North, East and West Highlands. The now long gone ferry service provided essential links for the Black Isle from as far back the Fifteenth Century. The opening of the Kessock Bridge saw the last service operating in 1982. Since then the pier has declined in its state of repair. The North Kessock Pier is now being maintained, upgraded and looked after by the charitable trust. There is parking next to the pier so launching a dinghy or kayak is no problem.
Apart from maintaining the pier, and seeking funding to upgrade and secure it for the future, we have also managed to attract two major annual boating events. Ironically this year they are on consecutive days with the culmination of Sail Caledonia - Scotland's Sail and Oar Raid on 1st of June and Annual North Kessock Community Pier Regatta
