The Sea Inside


As part of Scotland's year of Coasts and Waters, three local artists, Jacqueline Briggs, Alice Taylor and Izzy Thomson, have been supported by Scottish Natural Heritage's 'Plunge In! Coasts and Waters Community Fund' to work in partnership with Cromarty Courthouse Museum, alongside the communities of Cromarty and Resolis. This project explores our connection with the sea.

The museum is run by the community and managed by volunteers - so your donations are vital in enabling us to open to visitors.  For those living locally why not donate your time and skills to the museum, there is lots for volunteers to do throughout the year.



Scottish Charity number: 018438

The museum is part-funded by the Highland Council
