A village in the Black Isle parish of Resolis, Jemimaville lies on Udale Bay, an inlet on the south side of the Cromarty Firth, 5 miles (8 km) west of Cromarty. Founded as an estate village in 1822, it is named after Jemima Poyntz, the Dutch wife of a local Munro laird of nearby Ardoch later renamed Poyntzfield. The village was accidentally shelled by the British navy during the First World War, injuring a baby and damaging a house.
