Cromartyshire is a traditional fragmented county in the north of Scotland. It fragmented nature meant much of it was within Ross-shire so in 1889, the two counties were administratively merged to form Ross & Cromarty County Council. The largest part of the county was around Ullapool and Coigach, with Cromarty itself and Strathpeffer being the other two main settlements. In total there were over 20 pieces of the county, some uninhabited, others very small, and nine of them were around Kildary and east of Tain towards Portmahomack.
Almost all of the comments regarding Ross-shire also apply to Cromartyshire, such is the scattered nature of this county.
All non-trunk roads within the traditional county are maintained by Highland. The A9, A835 and A893 Trunk roads are managed by Transport Scotland. Ullapool is also the main ferry terminal for the Isle of Lewis, with two return crossings each day to Stornoway, and an overnight freight return.
