Rogart (Scottish Gaelic: Raoghard, meaning "great enclosed field") is a village in Sutherland, Highland, Scotland. The village was the home of Major Andrew MacDonald who fought in the French and Indian War.
It was originally a scattered crofting village, until the opening of the Rogart railway station at Pittentrail 1.5 miles to the southeast. A newer industrial village grew after the arrival of the railway in 1886, with the older village remaining.
The village of Golspie is 9 miles east of Rogart.
