THE BEACHES & WILDLIFE

Cromarty is located the tip of The Black Isle peninsula.  Its two beaches are divided by a sandstone harbour built in 1784.  
 
The beach on the east side is sandy with an open grass area with walks along the shore and through woodland.  Perfect to enjoy the morning sun and discover our dolphin family who will inspire you with their acrobatic performances if you are lucky enough to see them.  
Award winning dolphin and wildlife adventures are operated by Ecoventures.


On the west beach, with the sun setting over the mountains of Sutherland, the yachts bobbing in the bay, a cold drink in your hand, a wood fired pizza and a seat on the harbour wall is the perfect end to a summers evening
