Cromarty Firth, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on the Cromarty Firth in the north of Scotland. This Firth is an 18 mile long and narrow stretch of water, running roughly N.E.-S.W., which separates Easter Ross on the mainland from the Black Isle. (Latter is not a true island.) This stretch of water connects with the North Sea at the Sutors of Cromarty which is close to the village of Cromarty. Cromarty is about twenty-three miles N.E. of Inverness.

Principal towns and villages on the edge of the Firth include:

Excellent scenery and views when weather conditions are right. Ben Wyvis, a 3433 ft mountain positioned to the west, is usually visible.

There are numerous off-shore oil rigs moored in the Firth. During the summer months large cruise ships can be seen at Invergordon.
