Everything is much the same but it is thought that they have a dedicated visitors berth inside on the North wall where the issues have been resolved. The price remains the same as it has been for years.

Update Spring 2016

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. Telephone numbers have been updated and prices are still the same. As for the Cromarty/Nigg ferry - there are tenders out for this and they hope that it may run this year. The problem with the North wall being out of commission for its overnight berth is being solved and funds have been obtained for its refurbishment

The Cromarty ferry was no longer running last year when we visited.
