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.
