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.




Contact us if you would like to enquire about hiring the Stables as a wedding venue.  We can help with staff to manage the day and we can provide the names of recommended caterers who we know will do a good job for you.  See this page for more information.
