18th-century Paye House lies at the heart of Cromarty's historic conservation area, surrounded by cobbled lanes and listed buildings. Its first recorded owner was the keeper of the County Gaol who also ran an alehouse. In later years it served as one of the town's hubs as a general store, a doctors' surgery, a chip shop and a depot for antique toys.

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.
