St. Regulus Burial Ground, Cromarty

St. Regulus burial ground is located on a rocky outcrop opposite the tunnel entrance to Cromarty House on the road out of Cromarty up to Mains Farm. A chapel to St. Regulus once stood at the northeast end of the graveyard, parts of which were still visible in Hugh Miller's lifetime (1802-56). In 'Scenes and Legends of the North of Scotland' he writes,

'The ruins of the old chapel of St. Regulus occupy the edge of a projecting angel, in which the burying ground terminates towards the east. Accident and decay seemed to wrought their worst upon them. What is now, however, only a broken-edged ruin, and a few shapeless mounds, was three hundred years ago, a picturesque-looking high-gabled house of one story.'
