Smart, Secure, Sustainable
– Open Trust Port

The Port of Cromarty Firth has long been recognised for its potential as a great port. In Thomas Telford’s 1802 report on developing Highland transport links, Captain Duff recommended the firth as a base for warships.

The Navy visited the firth from 1854 and in 1913 the port became a ‘dockyard port’ and the Admiralty took control of all the waters of the Cromarty Firth.

The modern day Port of Cromarty Firth utilises the natural, deep sheltered waters of the Cromarty Firth to work with a diverse business portfolio based around an ‘Open Port’ philosophy, targeted towards our primary sectors – offshore wind, cruise, oil & gas and green hydrogen.
