Allanfearn[pronunciation?][1] is a small settlement, one mile east of Inverness, Inverness-shire, Scotland, within the Scottish council area of Highland.

Agriculture and Tourism[edit]

The village is located beside the Moray Firth with most of the fields now being used for hay making or grazing for cattle. The hamlet of Alturlie Point was once a fishing village with nine cottages which would have been the former homes of the salmon fishermen.[citation needed]
