Cromarty prides itself on being "the Highlands' best preserved 18th century town in Scotland" and there is certainly justification for that claim.

As it is off the mainstream tourist trail Cromarty just isn't on the radar of the thousands of visitors who hurry northwards towards John o'Groats.....and beyond.

Cromarty is a very attractive and rather unique old town. The narrow winding side streets are lined with little fishermen’s cottages and there are quite a few very interesting places to visit like the Jail Museum, the East Church an Hugh Miller's House.

There is, I found out recently, an exploratory walk locally known as the 100 Steps, which leads from the north end of the village to South Sutor (6 km round trip).
