Courthouse re-opens with two WWI exhibitions

The Cromarty Courthouse re-opened this Easter weekend with two new exhibitions commemorating the First World War.

The first queries the future of the now-crumbling defensive fortifications built on the South Sutor. Landscape architect Ronal Watson presents his vision of how the fort can be re-opened as part of an educational experience. The result is described as "a stunning exhibition that reveals Ronan’s imaginative ideas for the South Sutor buildings and gun emplacements using a variety of photographic techniques to inspire the viewer with visually beautiful panels."

The second exhibition looks at how the two communities of Cromarty and Resolis were affected by the war, "looking at those that went away and the impact on their families; how the the in-migration of thousands of soldiers and sailors changed the communities; how these visitors saw the Black Isle and what life was like for all those that remained behind".

Cromarty Courthouse is open Sunday–Thursday, 12.00–4.00pm. Further information can be found on the Courthouse website.
