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. Cromore is about 27 miles away by road 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.
