An imposing Georgian mansion, built for George Ross of Pitkerrie soon after he acquired the Cromarty Estate in 1722 and restored by the Nightingale family since the 1960's. The architect is unknown although Ross had close links with the Adam Brothers who visited Cromarty and produced unexecuted designs for a new parish church in the town.
The guided tours are ticketed and are limited to 25 visitors per tour. These have proven very popular over the years. To avoid disappointment, it is recommended that you go to the house on arrival in Cromarty and book your tour. You can then visit the other buildings open in Cromarty, have a coffee or lunch, visit Cromarty Potters, Gallery 48, Ingrid's House and Gardiner & Gardiner antiques before returning for your tour.
Tours of the house will take place at 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm
