Cromore (Scottish Gaelic: Crò Mòr) is a crofting township on the Isle of Lewis in the district of Pairc, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The settlement is within the parish of Lochs.[1] Cromore is about 27 miles away from Stornoway, the nearest town.

Although in decline as a crofting township, Cromore is within one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas. Its wild and unspoiled beauty make it a draw for tourists. Some of the former croft houses are now in use as holiday cottages.
