CROMARTY. Waiting For The Nigg Ferry.

Waiting for the ferry.

Sitting at the tip of the Black Isle Cromarty is home to the Ferry across the mouth of the Cromarty Firth to Nigg on the northern shore. The ferry isn’t big, two cars are the maximum load with space for a handful of pedestrian passengers. Car passengers are treated to a mini roundabout ride as the parking area rotates so you drive on, there’s a ten minutes or so journey a quick magic roundabout and you drive off again. It’s a quirky alternative to driving along the Firth’s northern shore through Invergordon to reach the next road crossing at the Cromarty Bridge. A highlight of the trip is a chance to see oil rigs in the firth, brought in for maintenance or dismantling.
