Living in Alness

Ask most people in the Highlands about Alness and they will probably say ‘flowers’. That is because the town has always prided itself on that good old-fashioned symbol of civic pride, floral displays. The town has been a constant winner in Britain in Bloom and Scotland in Bloom and even won the incredible honour of Royal Horticultural Society Champion of Champions. For a small town, even if it is one of the largest towns in Ross-shire, to win such an honour says a great deal about the sense of community, care, and the quality of life it offers.

It is also home to what is believed to be the world’s most expensive single malt; a Dalmore. Whisky from neighbouring Teaninich distillery goes for blending, a lot in Johnny Walker Red Label, and the draff (the used grain) is made into cattle feed, which might explain why the local herds look so happy.

Twenty miles north of Inverness and just off the A9 the town is built upon the banks of the River Alness, also known as the Averon, and the 11-mile river from Loch Morie to the sea is considered to be one of the most beautiful salmon rivers in Scotland. The remarkable thing about Alness is that it is only 20 miles from Inverness via the A9 for a stunning commute and linked to the city via the Far North railway line. Alness also has major engineering on its doorstep as the massive oil rigs waiting in Cromarty Firth testify.

Alness Academy the town’s secondary school is to get a new home with building work expected to begin by 2019.
