The Black Isle

The Black Isle<br><br>The Bonnie Black Isle is, on a bright summer’s day, not black. Nor, on any other day is it an island. “Bonnie” (Scots for “beautiful”) however, it assuredly is and it affords the visitor many beautiful views, seascapes, wildlife and places of interest. The “Isle” is in fact a peninsula strategically lying between the broad expanses of two Firths, Moray and Cromarty.

A very interesting museum set inside the original courthouse, the downstairs shows life and times on the black isle, the upstairs is the court room and a mock trial in progress, very funny as the characters were wearing PPE. There are also cells to see and a small shop. The staff were very friendly and informative. Free entry but a donation is welcome.

During Covid-19, the Cromarty Courthouse garden has remained open to the public every day for a quiet seat in the sun or a little stroll around the path cut through the wildflowers and grass in the fruit garden at the back. It’s a lovely, sheltered space and well worth a look!

If you find yourself driving in the Scottish countryside near Inverness, make your way to the small and charming town of Cromarty. The museum is housed in the 18th-century town courthouse. The museum holds documents relating to the town's history, including deeds, charters, and other legal documents. Our favorite spot in this historic site is the court itself.  With wood-paneled court boxes and mannequins representing various court figures you can really get a feel for court proceedings.

I have visited this gem of a museum many times, but this most recent visit was expressly to see the fascinating exhibition about the life and times of local draper, newspaper owner, provost and all-round 'character' John Bain. In the early years of the 20th century, Bain was an innovator in promoting tourism and a thorn in the flesh of the local Establishment. This exhibition covers all aspects of the life of this amazing Cromarty businessman with a range of interesting artefacts and extracts from his writings. Highly recommended.
