East Church Cromarty

Door open days

Highland - Ross & Cromarty

More than 700 years ago, a parish church was built nestled next to a burn and close to the Royal Burgh of Cromarty. Now known as the East Church, the church has stood firm on the same foundations ever since, a witness to changing religious practice, ups and downs in the fortunes of the townspeople, and new building and design styles. The church today reflects many of these changes, and is both a spiritually inspiring and historically fascinating building.

The church has been described as 'the epitome of a post Reformation Church' and ranks among the eight finest examples of its type in Scotland. It is nationally significant in terms of both built and ecclesiastical heritage.
