The town of Cromarty is located, perhaps not surprisingly, in the county of Ross and Cromarty. This entire region is one of the most lovely in all of the Highlands and this is quite a feat: The Highlands of Scotland are among the most stunning natural locations on the face of the Earth. At any rate, the county of Ross and Cromarty are of interest for people who love beautiful landscapes but it may be even more noteworthy among fans of natural history. After all, some of the oldest rock formations in all of Europe can be found in and around Cromarty and some of these date back all the way to the Precambrian period. The Precambrian period is essentially a blanket term for all of the years of the Earth's life before the Cambrian period. Since the Cambrian period began around five hundred and fifty million years ago, the Precambrian period stretches from that time up to about five billion years ago. In other words, some of the rocks in Cromarty are older than the oldest living beings by a long shot.

The great thing about Cromarty the town, though, is that its residents are treated not only to the incredible view of these rocky expanses but also a stunning coastline that offers even more thrills. Sitting on the southern shore of the Cromarty Firth, Cromarty and its bay allow for a limitless number of water-themed activity from fishing to transport. For years the town was well known for its topnotch hemp production and the material would be exported to the rest of Europe at a premium. Fishing for herring was also a very big business for Cromarty at one time. During World War I Cromarty was even used as a Naval base for the British!

For all these innovative uses of the dynamic water of Cromarty, the best reward lies in the coastal zoology. Countless people come from all over the world to swim off the shore of Cromarty and lay eyes on the sea life. The most popular creature is, not surprisingly, the bottlenose dolphin. This species can be found all over Cromarty and the town's coastline is one of the most northerly places in the world to find these lovable beasts. Many people don't even have to go in the water, as the town is considered one of the best places in Europe for seeing dolphins from the shore. Much of the tourist activity surrounding this exciting pursuit is handled by the nearby University of Aberdeen Department of Zoology, whose Lighthouse Field Station is based in Cromarty. By all accounts, life just seems to thrive in Cromarty and this trend has continued unabated ever since the beginning of time itself. Perhaps this is why Cromarty is so beloved throughout the country: The town is so old that it has simply had plenty of time to learn how to please anybody and everybody.
