View towards Knockfarrel from Fodderty
Fodderty is a small hamlet in Cromartyshire, near the east coast and close to Dingwall, Ross-shire's county town. The wider parish of Fodderty lies mostly in Ross-shire, but encompasses two of the parcels of Cromartyshire, including the southernmost point of the county in Blackmuir Wood to the south of Strathpeffer. It has a total population of 2,818.
The small hamlet of Bottacks is located a mile to the west of Fodderty hamlet and just to the east is Brae or Brea, formed in 1777 from the lands of Davochcarn, Davochmaluag and Davochpollo, long held by a branch of the Mackenzies, for which reason it is a part of Cromartyshire.
The growing town of Dingwall now encroaches on Fodderty.
