Resolis is a hamlet and parish in Cromartyshire, in the "old shire"; the original Cromartyshire deemed to be the main body of the county on the Black Isle.

The parish is one of scattered hamlets, along the B9163 that runs up the Black Isle, and amongst the meadows either side. Resolis itself is generally used for the cottages strung along the road.

Newmills is the hamlet south of the road where stands the parish kirk of Resolis.

Cottage at Alnessferry

Alnessferry and Ferryton are two hamlets north of the road, on the Cromarty Firth opposite the Ross-shire village of Alness, though no ferry runs between them today.

Weestward the road cross the Bog of Cullicudden and eastward to Balblair (an isolated part of Ross-shire).
