Gaelic Old Churchyard, Cromarty.

The churchyard is situated above the small town of Cromarty at the end of the Black Isle. It is accessed by turning right into the Paye, at a layby located a short distance within the 30mph limit.

The church was built in the 18thC to serve the Gaelic-speaking immigrants, who came to work in the early textile manufactories, which made Cromarty a focus of economic growth prior to the industrial revolution.

Three extensions have been built. The one to the east (towards the Hugh Miller Monument) contains many graves of servicemen (Cromarty Gaelic East). More recent extensions are to the west (on this website these referred to as Wester1 and Wester2).

Hello Was her married name McLeod? Do you know when she died? Is Chrisine the correct spelling (usually Christina in the Highlands), Do you believe she was buried in Cromarty?
