Things to Do

Cromarty is a very special place with so much going on in the area; cycling, mountain biking, walking, boat trips,  dolphin watching and a monthly community market are just a few of the activities on offer. Cycling tours can be arranged with advice given in suitable routes and we can also arrange fishing and kayaking. 

The town is steeped in history from medieval times with an archaeological dig arranged for the second year this summer. See the 18th century Merchants Houses in the town and fishing cottages down at the shore.  East Church has had a church on the site for over 700 years and is pome for visitors, whilst further down Church Street you can find World War 1 exhibitions at Cromarty Courthouse Museum alongside their courthouse and jail exhibition. Hugh Millers Cottage, a National Trust run attraction celebrating the life of the eminent 19th century geologist, writer and social commentator.

On the Black Isle, we are very lucky with the variety of wildlife we have.  The colony of bottlenose dolphins can often be seen from the shore at Cromarty or out in the Firth during the summer months with Cromarty based Ecoventures offering wildlife trips aboard their RIB. On land pine martens, badgers and red squirrels are all resident and there is bird watching with an RSPB hide at Udale a few miles along the coast.

Cromarty Brewing Company is a family run brewery with a shop attached selling their latest offerings. Black Isle Brewing Company close by in Allangrange near Munlochy is the UK's premier organic brewery, and offers daily tours.

Further afield is golf at Rosemarkie, and Chanonry Point one of the best places to see dolphins from land.

The Malt Whisky Trail, Fort George -a fortified 18th century garrison and working army barracks housing the highlanders regimental museum, Cawdor and Dunrobin Castle and Culloden Battlefield
