Poised on the tip of the Black Isle, Cromarty is the Highland’s best preserved historic town and Europe’s best place to see wild dolphins.
This charming and unique village, situated at the mouth of the Cromarty Firth north of Inverness, provides a wealth of attractions and activities for travellers and holidaymakers, and is a beautiful centre from which to travel through the Highlands and tour the surrounding countryside.
The town’s major attraction are the dolphins that frolic out in the Cromarty Firth along with seals, porpoises and minke whales and visitors can be taken on a boat trip to see the sea creatures at play.
Sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, abundant wildlife, unique architecture, a multi award-winning museum, and bird reserves of international importance, to name just few, all make Cromarty well worth a visit.
Cromarty was once also a home to UK’s smallest vehicle ferry, the Cromarty Ross, which could hold only two cars at a time.
