Living in Muir: the local area guide

A village on the western boundary of the Black Isle, which is, in fact, a peninsula, Muir of Ord is a charming place set in the sprawling countryside. A yearly livestock festival, known as the Black Isle Show, is one of the largest agricultural events in Scotland, with much of the Black Isle used for agriculture.

The village hosts the Glen Ord Distillery, purveyors of the Black Isle’s single remaining malt liquor. The distillery has a chequered past, sometimes operating legally, other times without a license. Today, its place is very much a legitimate one, with its vintages including 28-year-old whiskeys.

The Scottish Highlands boast a truly unique geology, with the landscape proving an incredible backdrop to the half dozen or so castles and ruins that dot the Black Isle. Muir of Ord might be small, but that’s half the appeal; it’s a village that certainly allows for modern living, whilst never letting modernity pollute the look and feel of the village.

Demographics

The village is largely Scottish, with 85% of residents having been born in Scotland. However, 12% of the village is, in fact, English, far higher than typical rates in Scotland.

It’s a younger population than much of the country and its rate of unemployment for 16-24-year-olds is far below the national average. This may be due to the industries the community at large engages in, with construction and manufacturing being those the highest proportion of residents are employed in.

It’s a religious community, one with a higher proportion of Church of Scotland observers than much of the country. The incidence of Gaelic speakers is higher than you might expect, however, fewer Scottish speakers populate the village.

Education

There is only one secondary school on the Black Isle, the Fortrose academy, which does all six years of secondary schooling and is located approximately twenty-five minutes away. It is an excellent school, with a high percentage of students leaving with 5 or more Highers than any other school on the Highlands.

Primary schools can be found much closer to home, with the Tarradale Primary School basing its campus in Muir of Ord. Nearby, the Beauly Primary School and Mulbuie Primary School are also within a short distance, both within ten minutes to the north or south of the village.

Nearby Inverness hosts a branch of the University of the Highlands and Islands, known as Inverness College. With a particular emphasis on the unique landscapes and customs of the Highlands, it remains an excellent institution, more than able to provide an effective university education.

Transport

Over the last few years, the Highland government have undertaken projects to improve the road system. With the construction of Kessock Bridge, connecting to Inverness, the A9 was moved north of the village. Formerly, it passed directly through Muir of Ord. Due to the changes, the road system through the village is modern and well-connected.

The train station within the village lies on two lines, the Far North and the Kyle of Lochalsh line, and runs to Dingwall and Inverness, amongst other locations. Bus services can also be found in the village, running to other towns and to the city of Inverness.

Amenities and shopping

The village hosts the usual features of modernity. A post office, supermarket, public houses and some restaurants, amongst other small shops, can be found within the village.

Nearby Beauly is also rather famous for its tartan sales and was once commissioned by Mary Queen of Scots to create tartan for the entirety of her court. The best shopping can be found in Inverness, which has several malls and a bustling High Street. Top quality brands, such as River Island, Topshop, and Superdry, can all be found in Inverness, along with a host of boutiques and unique stores.
