The original Harbour was built in 1784, Cromarty Harbour trust was established the same year.
Although Cromarty Harbour is relatively safe, boats moored on the pontoons do experience considerable motion in strong winds from Westerly round to North Easterly. Vessels should ensure they have adequate fendering in place.
Boats entering Cromarty Harbour should also be aware of strong tidal sets on both the Flood and the ebb especially during Springs.
Cromarty Harbour Trust is run by a team of volunteers and is not subsidised in any way. Any repairs or maintenance work undertaken, such as the necessary dredging, has to be self financing. All harbour dues received help towards these vital repairs and the upkeep necessary to secure the long term future of this historic harbour.
