Dig site seen from the air

 

Cromarty

The historic town of Cromarty is located on the eastern tip of the Black Isle 20 miles from Inverness.  If you are visiting from further afield, there are some good accommodation options, including the Old Brewery, self-catering, two small hotels and numerous B&Bs. Visit the Cromarty Live website for more information.

 

Excavation site:               

Reeds Park is a greenfield site located next to the Cromarty Allotments along the South Sutor footpath.  To get to the site by car or on foot, follow High Street to Shore Street. Follow Shore Street to the Cromarty Old Brewery (Cromarty Training Centre) and keep left on to Millers Road (alongside a high stone-built wall to right). Millers Road ends at the Causeway which continues to the right uphill.  There is a car park on the left just past the Cromarty Bowling Club.  The dig site can be seen clearly from the car park.  Access to the site is through the gate at the side of the car park.

If approaching the site on foot, you can access the site along the South Sutor footpath, by turning left along the footpath (signposted to the South Sutor) at the junction of Miller Road and the Causeway.  There is an interpretation board about the site  at the junction.

During the excavation there will be regular tours of the site, normally at 11am and 2pm every day. The site is next to a public footpath so you can view it from there if you can't make any of the tours.
