Cromarty Courthouse Museum

part of the Hidden Black Isle Trail

This elegant Grade A listed former courthouse, built in 1773,  now houses fascinating exhibitions about the historic town of Cromarty and the neigbouring parish of Resolis, which are FREE to visit. 

The courtroom scene has life-like figures and audio enactment to tell the story of a trial, the other rooms tell the history of Cromarty. Each year there are special exhibitions and displays, both on history and by local artists.

Take a look at our reviews on Trip Advisor, and please add your own thoughts on the Courthouse once you've paid us a visit.

OPEN every day from 12.00 - 4.00pm from Easter Sunday to mid-October

There's a special bonus for visitors to the Courthouse this month.

We're revisiting the 2010 exhibition about Black Isle author Jane Duncan, whose stories bring to life the world of a rural community in the 1930s. 

We've also extended Iain Robertson's exhibition of evocative drawings of the trees of the South Sutor. We reckon this will be the perfect complement to the art and flower festival taking place in the East Church from 17th to 25th June. 

On 17th and 18th June a stunning 30 gardens will be sharing their gardens with visitors for 'Behind Cromarty's Walls' from 11 - 4 each day. The Courthouse is taking part, and offering our grounds as a picnic site as part of the Jo Cox commemorative 'Great Get Together'.

The museum is run by the community and managed by volunteers - so your donations are vital in enabling us to open to visitors.
