Rogart (Scottish Gaelic: Raoghard, meaning "great enclosed field") is a small 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 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km) 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 (14 km) east of Rogart.
