Commuting to Inverness was a more leisurely business before 1982 when the Kessock Bridge (which spans a tectonic fault and has to allow for earth tremors) opened. The cars used to queue back along the road towards the bridge.
North and South Kessock take their name from the Celtic Saint Kessog, once considered the patron saint of Scotland. Here he is connected to the former abundance of herring, a plentiful and cheap source of food for centuries.
