Depths:Dredging for the 2010 season will give depths of approx. 1.8m LAT at the pontoon visitor berth.
Hazards: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.
Principal Use:Commercial, Fishing, Leisure and Pontoon Berths.
Harbour Size:Cromarty Harbour Trust also control an area of 200yds from harbour structures into the Cromarty Firth, moorings within this area are liable to charges. There are several categories of berthing available both alongside the wall and on the pontoon. Commercial, fishing and leisure vessels are all currently accomodated on a seasonal and long term basis.
Moorings:Harbour dredged to chart datum + 0.75m
Visitor Moorings:A small number of visitor berths are available subject to demand and prevailing weather conditions, and as such, cannot be guaranteed.
