The newest of all RNLI stations lies under the shadow of the Kessock Bridge.

Kessock RNLI began as a summer season-only service on 5 June 1993, operating from an old slipway at North Kessock on the Black Isle. A ticket office for the then Kessock ferry service was used as a changing room for the crew. The crew, which became permanent after just one summer season, continued to use those facilities until 2001 when it moved into its own lifeboat station. A ticket office for the then Kessock ferry service was used as a changing room for the crew.

The present lifeboat house was completed in September 2001 to accommodate a new Atlantic class station lifeboat at a cost of 481,500. An Atlantic 75 lifeboat B709 Lucy Beryl was placed on service as temporary station lifeboat on 18 October 2001. In 2002 the station was officially opened and a naming ceremony was held for the new Atlantic 75 lifeboat B-771 Moray Dolphin on Friday 7 June. This was withdrawn from service when the new Atlantic 85 lifeboat B-873 Robert & Isobel Mowat was placed on service on 11 January 2014.
