En route to John'O'Groats we split the journey by staying in Cromarty - a unique, somewhat undiscovered, gem of a village, with houses and cottages preserving it's character, and lots of interesting history, and with a famous son of 19th century, Hugh Miller.

We stayed at Sydney House for a night whilst walking around the Black Isle, and really enjoyed it. We had a room at the back of the house, overlooking the garden, which was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely.
