Cromarty Live

If you are travelling to the Highlands of Scotland and the Black Isle, you will be delighted with a visit to this charming and unique old town.

If you have links to Cromarty already, you will find news of what’s happening in the local scene.

Our website tells you of Cromarty’s many attractions, amongst which are fine 18th-century merchant houses, an ancient church made famous by being greatly successful in the BBC’s ‘Restoration Village’ programme and a museum honouring the remarkable 19th-century geologist and writer Hugh Miller. There are details of the town’s facilities and its available accommodation should you decide to stay. Hundreds of years of history are waiting for you to explore in its streets and narrow vennels.

Cromarty people are welcoming and always pleased to help.

Places to Go and Things to Do in Cromarty

Cromarty is the sort of place where you can exert yourself as much or as little as you wish. For those of an energetic bent, climb the 'Hundred Steps' to the South Sutor, go mountain biking or sea kayaking.

If you appreciate wildlife, book a dolphin-watching boat trip from the harbour or spot some birds along the shore or in the nearby fields.

If you are interested in Cromarty's past, venture into Hugh Miller's Cottage or the Courthouse Museum, then take a Cromarty audiotour and view 300 years of Scottish vernacular architecture and 'meet' a few of the town's more peculiar inhabitants.

Or, with no particular purpose in mind, meander along the Links (stopping to look at the Emigration Stone), see what's happening at the Harbour and nip into the Cromarty Bakery for a tasty bun.

Wherever you go in Cromarty, be prepared for the unexpected: a sudden gust of wind in the face as you turn a corner, a change of perspective as you view a familiar sight from a different angle, or a view such as this when you turn into the Vennel and a ship in the Firth seems within the hand's grasp.
