WW1 commemoration - Two communities changed by War

Two communities changed by war was a community project run by Cromarty Courthouse Museum in association with the Kirkmichael Trust, Scottish Redundant Churches Trust (East Church, Cromarty), Cromarty History Society and Cromarty Camera Club.

We looked at the impact of the First World War on the two parishes of Cromarty and Resolis, with a particular emphasis on the effect on individuals and families.


Take a look at our History Pin page for a few of the photographs from our WW1 collection.

Read the comic poem 'The Cromarty Mudlarks' written by Private James Livesey of the 3rd Seaforths – the ‘Dirty Third’.
