An Introduction to cromarty

Poised on the tip of the Black Isle, Cromarty is the Highland’s best preserved historic town.  In addition it is also the best place in Europe to see wild dolphins.

This charming and unique village is situated north of Inverness at the mouth of the firth.  It contains a wealth of attractions from sandy beaches to beautiful countryside. 

In addition there is abundant wildlife.  Dolphins are frequently seen frolicking in the firth.  Also, seals, porpoises and minke whales sometimes join them.  So,  why not take a boat trip to get up close to them while they play? 

If built architecture is more of interest to you why not wander around the town.  For example, there are buildings with unique architecture and an award-winning museum.  Also, don’t forget to visit the Emigration Stone.

Cromarty is also a beautiful centre to use as a base from which to travel to the surrounding countryside.  Nearby there is a bird reserve of international importance.
