In the spirit of Scotland’s Year of Coasts & Waters 20/21, our exhibition “Coastal Cromarty” celebrates our coastline and waters and acclaims the benefits and challenges they have brought to Cromarty’s shores.
Naval base during WW1
The waters around the coast of the Cromarty Firth have always been important. Cromarty lies at the opening of a long, sheltered inlet, looking out to the Moray Firth and beyond to the North Sea.
Cruise ship and dolphin
Since the early 1970’s, the Firth has played an important part in servicing the oil Industry, while cruise liners bring visitors from across the world. These days we are increasingly sensitive to the need to look after the ecology and wildlife of marine environments and the Cromarty Firth is now protected under several conservation designations.
It's also a place to relax and enjoy
