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.

Gladstone's Land is a unique historic building that was built to be the home of the wealthiest residents in Edinburgh. The oldest part was constructed during the reign of Mary Queen of Scot's and reached its full magnificence when the Gladstone family purchased and extended the property in the early 1600's. We are often described as a 'hidden gem' and lie just a stone's throw away from Edinburgh Castle, in the heart of the 'Old Town'. Guests in our self catering holiday apartments soak up the atmosphere of historic Edinburgh whilst enjoying arguably one of the best addresses the city has to offer. Read More >
The Gladstone Family originally made their home in the top floors of the building and rented out the lower floors to a Knight and his family, and a Minister from St Giles Cathedral amongst others. When the Trust rescued the building from demolition in 1934, a wealthy Edinburgh resident gifted the Trust to help renovate the property and create apartments for those of little means.
- Forming an essential part of Edinburgh's Old Town silhouette, the Gladstone Flat provides views over the city and into the hidden courtyards that surround the rear of the building. The area is famous for having the world's first sky scrappers and Gladstone's Land is one of those last remaining tenements.

The Gladstone flat takes pride of place at the top rear of the building and offers the perfect cosy base for exploring the city.
