It was a centre for oatmeal and later flax production, fed by the many surrounding farms during the heyday of the Clan Ross. Its market cross dates from the late 18th century. The mill was powered by a feed from the Balnagown River.
The original village, a conservation area, features classic Scottish Vernacular architectural features, and a short distance away the Tarbat Estate includes Major-General Lord MacLeod's 1787 Georgian Tarbat House, now in a state of ruin but with many original features within the grounds, including the burial sites of favourite horses and dogs and an impressive, although now uncared for Victorian arboretum. The view from the top floors of the mansion in its early days before the encroachment of trees would have provided a spectacular view over the grounds to the Cromarty Firth.
