Community Council contacts
After community council elections take place Highland Council collects and publishes on its website contact information for Highland community councils, including the names of office-holders. This process has now been completed, and contact information and office-holders for all the Black Isle and adjoining community councils, is shown below.
This information is consistent between Highland Council's website and individual community council websites and is believed to be correct at October 2020. (updated for Cromarty interim election).

Community Council Elections results December 2019
All Black Isle councils constituted - election in Ferintosh completed
Following the extension of the nomination period, all Black Isle and neighbouring councils secured enough nominations for a council to be constituted. Four additional nominations were received in Ferintosh, leading to the unusual requirement for an election, which took place by postal ballot ending on 4 December.
In the Highlands as a whole, of the 156 community council areas, in 16 a council was not formed because of insufficient nominations, in 16 there were more nominations than the maximum number of seats on the council (this varies from 7 to 13 according to the size of the area), thus requiring an election, and all the remainder, with nominations below or at the maximum, were uncontested.
View the results (following the 4 December election for Ferintosh) for the 'Black Isle' councils below. Note that community council boundaries do not correspond with electoral ward boundaries. Of the community councils which might be regarded as belonging to the Black Isle, Beauly, Conon Bridge and Muir of Ord are wholly outside the Black Isle ward boundary (ward 9), as are parts of Ferintosh, Killearnan and Knockbain.
Maps of all the Black Isle community council areas, and of the Black Isle electoral ward boundary, can be found at Resources / Document Library / Community Councils Maps.
