Within the village itself there is a friendly and challenging 18-hole golf course (Scottish Golf Club of the year 2016) which was designed by James Braid and, as you play, you can delight in beautiful mountain and countryside scenery.There is also an impressive array of other world class golf courses, all within an hour's drive from the village, such as Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart, Nairn, Fortrose and the Kings course in Inverness.

Muir of Ord has its very own local malt whisky distillery, Glen Ord, where you can experience whisky tasting tours.

Don't miss the opportunity to look behind the scenes and see how this popular single malt, Singleton, is brought to life using barley from the Black Isle and water from the White Burn to create its unique taste.

There are major salmon rivers in the area providing some of the best fishing possible, along with various local lochs with wild brown trout and coastal water fishing.

To the South of the village, Inverness and a boat trip along the Caledonian Canal, Eden Court theatre, shops, restaurants and bars are worth visiting or maybe even a trip to Scotland's most famous Loch Ness to try to see the monster will appeal.

To the north, through rugged scenery, historical towns like Dingwall, Golspie, and Dornoch are within easy reach. To the west, the spectacular countryside, lochs and beaches of Wester Ross offer stunning gentle scenery at Ullapool, Gairloch and Skye.

To the east, the Black Isle includes the small towns of Cromarty, Fortrose and Rosemarkie with its amazing beach where you can often see dolphins at Chanonry Point.

From beaches, castles, wildlife parks, nature reserves and mythical monsters to all types of sporting activities and events, tours and trips, the Highlands has so much to offer.

Muir-of-Ord, where Drovers from all over Scotland used to congregate and trade, thanks to its convenient location, is the perfect base from which to explore as much of the wonderful highlands as possible. Welcome to The Old Manse and Slainte Meath (pronounced Slanj-a-va)
