Cromarty firth is where the oil rigs come into for repairs, and cruise liners also visit.

The entrance to the Cromarty Firth is guarded by two precipitous rocks — called "The Sutors" from a possible resemblance to a couple of shoemakers (in Scots, souters) bent over their lasts. From the Sutors the Firth extends inland for a distance of 19 miles. The southern shore of the Firth is formed by a peninsula known as the Black Isle. The best view of the whole Firth is from the top of Fyrish.

The firth is a designated as a Special Protection Area for wildlife conservation purposes.

This area is more renowned for Chanonry Point which lies approx 10 miles south of Cromarty Village . Here you can get great shots of dolphin close to the shore but tides need to timed correctly . You can also take a good trip out from Cromarty Village with Ecotours who offer about 2hrs out in the Firth and the opportunity to phtograph the dolphins at close range . I have had 3 trips with them and have yet to be disappointed. Further up the Frth is good for migratory waders especially in winter.
