In order to further its charitable objectives, the Trust offers affordable accommodation to students, researchers, writers, artists, musicians and others coming to experience and learn about Cromarty for stays of anything between one week and one year.
The accommodation is in a traditional townhouse at no 19 Bank Street, Cromarty. It offers a peaceful place in which to write and think with all the town’s wonderful facilities on the doorstep - shops, cafes, pubs & restaurant; harbour, beaches, cinema, park, tennis courts and walks.
There are five rooms with shared use of a fully-equipped kitchen/dining room. Most have lovely views over the Cromarty roofscapes and the two top floor rooms look out over the Cromarty Firth.
Each room is well equipped, warm and comfortably furnished with study areas, free wifi and en-suite bathrooms. There is free parking right outside and the bus stop for service bus to Inverness and elsewhere on the Black Isle is just two minutes round the corner.
We have a fully fitted wet room attached to our ground floor Room 1 that can accommodate those in a wheelchair or with other accessibility issues. Our front door has been replaced and there is a now a small ramp to ensure ease of use for residents in wheelchairs.
Please note however, that the communal kitchen is not fully accessible and we have been advised that the spaces throughout are suitable for manual wheelchairs only. We can accommodate carers in other rooms within the house but generally the room is not suitable for those with high care requirements. A big thank you to Lawrence for testing the room and for modelling for these photos.
