Entrance to Cromarty Harbour
Entrance to Cromarty Harbour
The small Highland town of Cromarty is a seaport at the tip of the Black Isle, twenty three miles to the north east of Inverness. It sits on the southern shore at the entrance to the Cromarty Firth. The town had a population of 719 at the 2001 census (Archive LinkExternal link Scottish Census Results OnLine).

The harbour dates back to the 1780s. The port was a British naval base during the First World War; the concrete additions to the harbour are slowing crumbling back into the sea. It is a working harbour, home to a small fleet of prawn trawlers and creel boats.
