Welcome to the new Visit Tain website.


The site is still in development and we are adding more content all the time, but it’s already a good, additional source of information for visitors to Tain and the Northern Highlands.


A local company ourselves, we would welcome news about upcoming events (in fact you can post your own on the Tain Events page), and we invite hotels, restaurants, pubs, and owners of accommodation and attractions to get in touch so that we can let as many people as possible know as much as possible about what’s on offer in this great region in which we live and work.
