Croy (Gaelic: Crothaigh) is a village between Inverness and Nairn, in the Highland council area in Scotland. The village looks over the Moray firth and is located a few miles from Inverness Airport.
The site of the Battle of Culloden is located within the same parish. The local church was built in the 18th century. An old manse is associated with the church. The village hall was built in 1907 with the aid of local funding. The land where the hall stands was donated by the Kilravock estate.
The local area has expanded in recent years. Scotia Homes have completed a development of 40 homes on the outskirts of the village. A larger development of approximately 200 homes has been proposed for construction in the coming decades but this has worried the local community.
The village contains a local shop and a primary school in the catchment area of Culloden Academy. Nearby Cantraybridge college also provides rural vocational training for adults with learning disabilities.
