The small fishing village faces east and is situated close to Portmahomack, which faces towards the west in an area also known as the Tarbet Peninsula.

The small hamlet, in the parish of Tarbat, is famous for being the home of Ballone Castle, built in the 16th century by the Dunbar family. Once a ruin and now restored as a family home.

There is a small stone jetty on a raised beach – the perfect place to watch the sunrise.
