Who we are
Ross and Cromarty Heritage aims to produce a multi-media account of contemporary and historical life in the thirty-six Communities of Ross and Cromarty. The material collected takes the form of short profiles, ‘snapshots’ of the Folk, Place, Environment, Work, Societies, Recreations and Heritage of each Community, illustrated by photographs. Extended articles also form an important part . Information continues to be gathered from all 36 Communities.
Our website address is: https://www.rossandcromartyheritage.org.
