Cromarty Harbour scene
Cromarty Harbour scene
A variety of boats are moored in the calm water of Cromarty Harbour on a warm and sunny afternoon. Beyond the harbour 3 jackup rigs and a more familiar drilling rig are moored in the Cromarty Firth. These jackup rigs are floating barges with tall support legs which can be lowered to the seabed to raise the barge above the water surface. The nearest jackup rig in the photo is 'GSF Galaxy I' with barge raised above the water surface.
