Cromarty, located in Highland, was once a county town located in the county of Cromartyshire. Visitors will find it located not far from Invergordon. The town itself grew around the port and was a naval base during WWII. The smallest vehicle ferry in the UK is actually located at the port, running from Firth to Nigg during the summer and early autumn months. Visitors will find there are numerous Victorian cottages scattered throughout the area. There are ample accommodation options for visitors who are interested in staying within the local area.

The Scottish Highlands royal burgh that is known as Cromarty is based within the area of Ross and Cromarty. The county town of Cromarty is common as a seaport that is located on the shores to the south of the confluence of the firth of Cromarty. The town of Cromarty is located about five miles from the town of Invergordon. The Cromarty name is derived from the Gaelic word crom that means crooked and the Gaelic word bati, which means bay and also the word ard that means height.

The town of Cromarty was first established as a port and it was once used for ferries in order to export the hemp fibre that was grown locally and also for the export of herrings that were caught by the trawlers within the local area.

The town of Cromarty was used as a British naval port during the time of the First World War and on the 30 December 1915 the HMS Natal was blown up close to the town and it resulted in a vast number of lives.

Nowadays the port is the home of the smallest ferry vehicle in the United Kingdom and the ferry travels back and fro on the Firth to the area of Nigg. The firth was once home to a big facility that was used for the manufacturing and also the maintenance of the oilrigs.

The town of Cromarty is important architecturally due to its cottages that date back to the Victorian times that are located within the town in a vernacular style. The area is also known to be a good viewing point for the local sea life that can be seen offshore.
