A9, The Black Isle
A9, The Black Isle
Despite its name, the Black Isle (Scottish Gaelic: an t-Eilean Dubh) is not an island. It is a peninsula within Ross and Cromarty, in the Scottish Highlands surrounded on three sides by water; the Cromarty Firth to the north, the Beauly Firth to the south, and the Moray Firth to the east.
The A9
The A9 is a strategic link between the Highlands of Scotland and the Central Belt. Running for 273 miles, it is the longest road in Scotland and the fifth-longest A-road in the United Kingdom. Historically it was the main road between Edinburgh and John o' Groats but its importance has been eclipsed somewhat in the south by the A90 across the Forth Road Bridge and the M90 motorway, which now links Edinburgh more directly with Perth, and the M9, which is now the main road between Edinburgh and Bridge of Allan
