Daviot Visitor Information Guide

woods daviotwoods daviotDaviot Highland This little village lies a few miles south of Inverness and first appeared in records about 1210 as 'Daveth'; thought to be similar in derivation to the Welsh county name Dyfed, it refers to the tribe Demetae, from the Pictish word for 'sure' or 'strong'.

The old castle of Daviot was by all accounts an impressive structure. If your looking for bed and breakfast accommodation in a village location Daviot could be just for you Little remains now except one part of the angle towers overlooking the river Nairn. Until I757 it stood almost intact but then within a few years had been demolished to provide build­ing material for the nearby farmhouse.

The old kirkyard of Dunlichity - connected to Daviot - is one of those secluded places full of atmosphere.

The church, reconstructed in 1758, is built on the site of the old chapel of St Finan (AD 575). It has interesting heraldic tombstones. Daviot's own attractive church, dating from the early 19th century, is a striking piece of architecture.
