Inverallochy was mentioned in my blog last week – it is the neighbouring village to Cairnbulg. Like Cairnbulg, this is an 18th Century former fishing village and is well renowned for its 18 hole links golf course. Every hole on the golf course looks out over the North Sea and by all accounts, it is a rather challenging course for any level of golfer!
The picture that features on the blog this week is of the Sovereign fishing boat wreckage. The boat ran aground in 2005 and can still be seen today.
Some people come to Inverallochy to see Maggie’s Hoosie. This is the only remaining fishermen’s cottage of its kind. It is a small pan-tiled whitewashed cottage that was lived in until the 1960’s. Nowadays, it is a small museum.
If you fancy taking a walk to do some exploring, there is a nice walk to Whitelinks Bay. It is about 6km and starts off at Inverallochy harbour. It takes you through the village, onto a grassy path that leads between the golf course and the sea, eventually bringing you down to the sandy beach. It is such a beautiful beach for a walk and an explore around!
