Muir of Ord is a large picturesque village in the Highlands of Scotland, situated on the western edge of the Black Isle, 14 miles north-west of Inverness. Muir of Ord was previously the hamlet of Tarradale, the new road systems built in 1814 increased the traffic and led to the growth of the village, flat land south of Tarradale was selected for cattle-drovers to congregate and from 1820 this was the location of large Trysts (cattle markets) on the site known as Muir of Ord. The railway arrived in 1862 with a station at Tarradale however the station was name after the Tryst site and gradually Tarradale was no longer used. The railway remains in operation on the main-line north from Inverness. From the 19th century Muir of Ord has been known for its whiskey production, illicit whiskey was produced at the Mill of Ord, until it legalised operations in 1838. The distillery is now known as Glen Ord and has a visitor centre and guided tours. Muir of Ord is a popular tourist resort with hotels and holiday accommodation, shops and local amenities, a village hall and the Muir of Ord Golf Club. Other activities include walking, fishing and nature watching. TheBlack Isle Show is a large agricultural show held each August near Muir
