'The jewel in the crown of Scottish vernacular architecture', Cromarty is one of the best preserved historic towns in the Highlands and an outstanding example of an 18th /early 19th century Scottish burgh.



Its character comes from a rich mixture of small fisherman's cottages, fine Georgian town houses and Victorian commercial buildings, featuring architectural detail such as crow-stepped gables, slate roofs, marriage stones and datestones. Cromarty is home to the thatched fisherman's cottage where the influential self-taught geologist Hugh Miller was born in 1802 (http://canmore.rcahms.gov.uk/en/site/14437/details/cromarty+church+street+hugh+miller+s+cottage/).
