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. Comment left on 07 September 2008 at 23:12 by Flora Thomson

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 Comment left on 08 September 2008 at 20:07 by Mary Mackay now Tomlinson Harrison
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? Comment left on 20 July 2009 at 01:32 by Robert Lindsay Home

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. Comment left on 09 May 2016 at 09:21 by Robert (Bob) Home
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. Comment left on 16 May 2016 at 11:58 by Geoff Milton
