About this location

The Ross and Cromarty region

Cromarty is situated at the end of the distinctive very fertile peninsula known as the Black Isle only half an hour drive from the Highland capital Inverness in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

It is a fantastic base to explore, walk the nearby cliffs and coasts, mountain bike the trails at the new hub, Learnie Red Rock or dolphin watch with Ecoventures from the picturesque harbour. Take the smallest ferry in Britain across the Cromarty Firth to taste whiskey at the famous Glenmorangie Distillery and visit the imposing Dunrobin Castle. Go West to the magical Isle of Skye or South to see the haunts of the famous Loch Ness monster.

There is great local sailing with clubs at the Harbour and nearby Chanonry Fortrose. Scotland being the home of Golf means there is a multitude of great Links courses available from the Royal Dornoch to the nearby Fortrose.

The village is well served with a wonderful Pizza restaurant, Sutor Creek, a hotel and pub both serving food, a fantastic bakery, a little but well stocked supermarket and a Post Office.

All a five minute walk away.

We also have a great sandy beach with grass areas for Kids to play

Cromarty is without a doubt the Highlands best preserved Historic town .It is a Jewel rich in History and folklore striking architecture. and supberb wiews and sunsets from the headlands

"Wonderful for a relaxed, quiet holiday"

We had a really great week in this very comfortable accommodation. Good facilities especially the bathroom. A great place to relax and enjoy local walks etc.

The views out of the lounge and main bedroom were entertainment in themselves - watching the weather changes and looking for dolphins. We saw dolphins twice from the house in one week.

Would also recommend Chanonary Point (10 miles) for seals and dolphins and also Fleet Loch (50 miles), a nature reserve which is great for birds and for seals.

"Amazing home from home, in the picturesque village of Cromarty"

Great place to spend easter.This house has everything you need and really enjoyed watching the boats and the water from the living room.

Had fun exploring the village and took the coastal walk out to the old gun emplacements but didn't see any dolphins this time.

We can recomend the food at The Royal Hotel, The Pantry Tearoom and a visit to the bakery. Didn't mangae to get into the Pizza place as it was fully booked but we will try again on our next visit.
