Welcome to The Cromarty Arts Trust

We are based in the beautiful Highland town of Cromarty, on the Black Isle.

Our goals are to promote and embrace the arts, education, environment, history of the Highlands, and the conservation of buildings of historical or architectural importance.

‘Northern Exposure’ Art Exhibition by Jonathan Shearer

– September 24th to October 1st


At the Stables, Cromarty.  Open every day 10am to 6pm.  Free admission.

Introducing his exhibition, Jonathan says, "… I am trying to push my technique of painting and drawing in new directions.  The work will be a mixture of plein air and studio-based painting derived from the northern landscape. The exhibition will range from large scale drawings to installations of paintings. My aim is to try and convey my response to the physical experience of landscape rather than just recording a specific view/snapshot of the landscape.”

Artists Residencies

We have hosted a series of residencies for artists and musicians and currently we provide studio space and a gallery space which can accommodate visual arts exhibitions, theatrical and musical events. One of the main priorities of the Cromarty Arts Trust is to promote educational links between Cromarty and the art world.

We welcome enquiries for conferences and special events particularly of a cultural nature.

Cromarty Arts Trust has commissioned pieces of public art and is always seeking to find ways of developing projects that will increase opportunities for Cromarty and local artists.
