A copy of a photograph taken in 1907 showing stallholders at the Croy Bazaar celebrating the opening of Croy Hall.

Croy is a hamlet in the parish of Croy and Dalcross which is split between the counties of Inverness and Nairn. The hall, built in 1907, is the focus of social and recreational activities. It is actually two halls - the large hall seats 300 people and the small hall, or Library (it was partly funded by a Carnegie Library grant) seats 40.

There are two schools of thought regarding the origins of the name Croy - coming from the French croix (meaning 'a cross') or the Gaelic cruaidh (meaning 'hard'). The population is scattered among a few hamlets - the 1991 census gave the population of the parish as 894.

The original photographer is MacMahon of Nairn and Inverness
