A visit to Cromarty wouldn't be complete without going to the Courthouse where the staff go above and beyond to make your visit special. Thank you for all of the help in searching for relatives in Cromarty

Very interesting little place with free entry. Can sit in .... even dress up.... in a genuine court case. Lots of history of the village and still have the original cells. Friendly lady in the gift shop. Well worth a visit.

You just have to sit and see/hear the current case in the courtroom and be grateful that you neither are in the dock or liable to be thrown into the cells, which see. Pity that there is no cash available to maintain the building properly.

Interesting building complete with cells. The highlight is the courtroom on the first floor with a trial taking place

We spent about ninety minutes in this interesting museum. Free entry but donations appreciated. The courtroom with the trial was the highlight but all was interesting and worth spending the time. Friendly helpful lady on the front desk recommended Ecoventures which was also very good....More

Interesting history of the town. Plus the courthouse with a re-enactment of a case. Lovely little garden outside around the back.
