Sydney House Bed and Breakfast
Matheson was conversational, knowledgeable, and extremely welcoming. (Ditto his wife, though she was out by day working.)
Cromarty is a very attractive small 18th century town (much revived since our last visit many years ago & with at least 2 good places to eat), with a lovely walk up the South Sutor - & attractions in the neighbourhood to keep us very happy for 5 days (including a splendid Ecoventures boat trip from Cromarty to see dolphins [& in June/July razorbills & other sea birds)
The weather was wonderful, & the area would not have looked so lovely otherwise. Also the Nigg ferry is seasonal & financially precarious
