About
North Kessock Community Pier is the only public facility suitable for small to medium boat launching in the inner Moray Firth. We recently upgraded the structure by adding a Small Boat Jetty, to greatly enhance safe access for all users, especially those with reduced mobility. This also provides an excellent viewpoint for dolphin watching and taking photographs of the firth, especially spectacular sunsets!

A renewed port of call on the Beauly Firth
Oct 2019 • Solo
A handy pier for easy alternative access to the north shore of the Beauly Firth. It's free to use, and so is the large car park immediately adjacent. The pier is directly opposite the North Kessock Hotel, a wonderful haven for food & drink. The recently converted Old Ticket Office now serves as a small museum.
The pier itself is big enough for medium-sized pleasure boats, but has a raised slipway for smaller vessels such as ribs and kajaks etc. Popular too for dolphin spotting.
Well worth the short detour while on the Firth, or drop by if passing on the A9 immediately over the Kessock Bridge. I hope to include it in 2020 as part of my own sea kayaking activities around the area.

Has a lovely feel
Sep 2019 • Solo
The community pier has a coastal garden which looks magnificent and overlooks the bay. A picknick table, comfortable chairs and wooden benches. loads of plants give it a special feel and love the nautical theme with the boat, netting etc. Toiletspiegel available as well. Great place for otter spotting.

Thanks for the review - it should actually have been for NKTOP who constructed the Garden. We (NKCP) exist to maintain the pier as a free, safe facility for launching and retrieving boats. It's also ideal for enjoying and photographing the view!

Brilliant Project
Jul 2019 • Couples
I've been visiting North Kessock for over 30 years and what a surprise when we arrived today. The Community Garden is lovely with seating for locals and visitors looking out over the water. The Ticket Office is bright and welcoming with photos and info on the history of the place. The addition of public toilets - this has been a long time coming and definitely a bonus. Well done to those who worked hard on this project.

Thanks for your comments. We will pass them on to the folks at NKTOP whose project it is! We at NKCP look after the pier itself, ensuring it is safe and available for boat launching etc and for taking in the views!
