Town in Easter Ross & Black Isle

© Peter Reynolds

Dingwall is a town and a royal burgh in the Highland council area of Scotland. It has a population of 5,491. It was an east-coast harbour that now lies inland. Dingwall Castle was once the biggest castle north of Stirling. On the town’s present-day outskirts lies Tulloch Castle, parts of which may date back to the 12th-century building. In 1411 the Battle of Dingwall is said to have taken place between the Clan Mackay and the Clan Donald.

The museum in Dingwall is worth a visit, the staff are well versed in the history of Dingwall and surrounding area from Viking times to modern day.
