One of the small streets in the Fishertown. Note the Crowstep gable on the cottage at the right of the picture, a feature which can still be seen on a number of houses in the town.

crow steps or craw steps as some Scots know them as are the set of projecting steps on the gables of the roofs of old houses.

Ah I see thank you very much - it wasn't one I'd heard of even having grown up in Jemimaville and spent loads of time in Cromarty. Love the place love the site. Lang May Your Lums Reek Mary

I believe that my Great Grandmother, Christina Reid, lived in No. 5 Gordon's Lane at the end of the 19th Century. Are there any descendants of her family living in Cromarty now?

Many thanks for the photos. They have started me working on my family tree again after a couple of year's break. My antecedents on my fathers side all seemed to have come from the Black Isle.

I am descended from a MacKedie who lived in Cromarty. I will be visiting the town in July and would love to catch up with any relatives.
