Cromarty is a small village at the tip of Black Isle, the Black Island. Nothing black on Black Isle, the peninsula is an oasis of greenery and tranquillity, where fields, forests and charming villages alternate. This is the ideal place to go cycling and for long walks!
I arrive in Cromarty at the end of the afternoon. With the rays of the sun setting, the port takes on warm and reassuring colours. In the region, it is one of the oldest active ports. It dates back to the 18th century.
On the roof of the harbour hut, a seagull looks at the horizon. It watches the Cromarty Firth, the estuary from which boats leave to reach the high seas.
From June to September, there is a ferry between Cromarty and Nigg, located on the opposite shore. Pedestrians, cyclists and up to three cars can board it. A short ferry ride to get a glimpse of the great adventure!
