About Nigg Old Church

Nigg Old Church is a fine example of a Scottish parish church and - since it houses a magnificent Pictish stone of the late eighth century, carved with unique Pictish symbols and Christian imagery - it is likely that it stands on what has been a place of Christian worship for at least 1200 years.

It has, to this day, an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. The Church lies on the southwest approach to the village of Nigg, in the county of Ross & Cromarty.

Approximately 35 miles drive north of Inverness, it can also be reached using the car ferry which runs from Cromarty in the summer months.

In the area are a number of other sites of interest. The Shandwick Pictish stone is 4 miles away, and museums at Tain, Cromarty and Rosemarkie further explore the local history. This stone is part of the Highland Pictish Trail.
