 The bridge at Contin was built by Telford the first newly-built one was swept away by a flood in 1811, but at once replaced. There is a modern expansion of the village in the form of stone houses built by the Hydro-Electric Board for the workers on the nearby Conon, Orrin, Fannich, and Luiechart schemes. They are made of the pink stone from Tarradale on the Black Isle.

The horse fair at Contin once attracted buyers from the North of England, who found this fair a useful source for collecting sturdy ponies for work underground in the pits.

The Falls of Rogie, on the Blackwater is two miles north west of Contin, they are easily reached by a path from Contin on the garve road.
