Nairn recently knocked out strong Championship opponents Caley Thistle in a dramatic penalty shoot-out to reach the final after a 2-2 draw at Station Park.
Ross County were made to work hard and defend stoutly, but an Alex Samuel treble made the difference in their 3-0 semi-final victory at Brora Rangers.
The Dingwall side, back in the competition for the first time since winning it in 2018, roared to an 8-0 first-round win at Wick Academy in August before beating Golspie Sutherland 3-0 in the quarter-finals.
Nairn, meanwhile, who last held the silverware in 2012-13, were 3-2 victors against Lossiemouth before a 5-0 win at Forres Mechanics set them up for their triumph over Inverness.
There have been strong attendances in this year’s competition and that is sure to be the case for the clash of the Counties.
