18th-century Paye House lies at the heart of Cromarty's historic conservation area, surrounded by cobbled lanes and listed buildings.

About the area

Cromarty has plenty to enchant both travellers and holidaymakers: sandy beaches, Georgian architecture, bottlenose dolphins, and bird colonies of international importance. It first became a Royal Burgh in the 13th century. In the 1700s salt-fish processing and sea-trade helped to swell the town's economy, and many of its famous merchants' houses date from this era.

 

Cromarty is only 40 minutes' drive from Inverness, the "capital of the Highlands".

 

Things to do



  • Visit the birthplace of Hugh Miller. Miller was a stonemason, geologist and writer, whose thatched cottage is now a museum with a colourful garden of native plants.


  • Climb the 'Hundred steps' to South Sutor, accessed via the Reeds Park Path along the shore at the east end of town. The Sutors are rocks on either side of the firth thought once to be the abode of two giant shoemakers.


  • You'll be less than an hour's drive from Culloden. Discover the story behind the Jacobite uprising and the last battle to be fought on Scottish soil.




 

Getting there

Cromarty is 22 miles north-east of Inverness. From the Kessock Bridge in Inverness, follow the A9 north until signs for A832 to Cromarty.

  • Dates Available

  • 2
  • 1
  • Not allowed
Gladstone's Land is a beautiful property often described as a 'hidden gem'. Lying just a stone's throw from Edinburgh Castle, on the Royal Mile, in the area known as 'Old Town'. The main part of our unique building dates as far back as 1550. The National Trust for Scotland rescued the property from demolition in the 1930's and has since restored the interiors of the first two floors to show how they would have looked and been used by tenants in circa 1620. The reconstructed cloth booth, priceless Renaissance painted interior, and many other rare features gives visitors a unique insight into the life and work of Edinburgh's citizens almost 400 years ago.  Read More >
Our comfortable holiday accommodation is separate to the visitor attraction; housed in the upper floors of the building.
