The church, which has not been used for worship since 1998, has been very well preserved by a charity I have never heard of but who clearly know their business. There is information on boards and in booklets in the church. It charts the history...More

We were just wandering through Cromarty when we came across the East Church. The exterior was interesting, but the interior was very special and in great shape. They have an extensive description of its past. Scotland is doing a marvelous job in preserving places like...More

Cromarty is a delightful little town anyway but the East Church was most unexpected. Disused now but one of the most evocative buildings of its type we have seen in terms of a lifestyle now gone. The original pews, all of different sizes and the...More

The church doesn't look anything from the outside, so we probably wouldn't have gone in, but as they were having a flower and art exhibition we ventured inside. The inside is beautiful and worth a look. The exhibition was an added bonus.

This is a step into the past, fascinating history. If you get chance to sing or goto a concert here- go! The acoustics are amazing and what a peaceful place with some sorrowful history of times gone by.

It's all to easy to walk past this architectural wonder, and you'd be missing out. For starters, you'll never have seen so many daddy long legs, for some unknown reason uncommonly attracted to the outer church walls. The inner wooden church has been restored extensively...More

The simplicity of the church and it's design, decor etc were powerful in portraying its role in the community. Anything added was carefully considered and subtly handled. Information supplied outlined the important aspects of the church and its constituent elements. Charming.

If you enjoy church visiting, don't miss this one. A well cared for redundant church, it has a lovely atmosphere and there are many interesting details to look at. The graveyard is very picturesque. For kids? Our son is so used to being dragged round...More
