About Rogart


Rogart also has a long crofting history and this continues to the present day.  The parish is a popular place to live and the population is roughly equally divided between those descended from crofting families and those who chose Rogart as their home.  Community spirit is strong.

The parish is served by a good road system linking it to the A9 in the East and Lairg eleven miles to the West.  The northern area is served by single track roads.   In the parish there is a well-supported Primary School, shop/post office, service garage, hotel and restaurant, smiddy, and a railway station giving direct connections to Inverness and to Thurso and Wick in the North.  There is a modern Village Hall, which is very well used by local people and organizations, some of the things that take place there are; tai chi, an accordion and fiddle club, ceilidh-dance group, S.W.I, and a monthly film.

The Summer Gala takes place at the beginning of June, from Friday until Sunday finishing with a service in the afternoon at the old Mart.  The Vet is in the village and there are sheepdog trials four times a year.
