Welcome to Cromarty Boat Club


Cromarty township lies near the entrance to the Cromarty Firth, heading very slightly West of the Moray Firth between the two 'Sutors', and is an excellent stopover if heading through the Caledonian Canal/Great Glen.

Cromarty Boat Club Clubhouse is the converted Seaplane Tower looking out over the harbour, below the 'NESS' on which stands Cromarty Lighthouse -- now unlighted.

During the summer you will see club members' boats on moorings in the bay, and often sailing! -- during the winter many members will be working in the secure boat compound adjacent to the harbour or in the workshop.

We lift in and lift out with a hired crane each season. The club HQ in the watchtower has toilets, showers and washing machine.

If you are visiting by sea  --  and be aware of the strong tidal flow into and out of the harbour during spring tides, especially with a strong westerly wind  --  this excellent clubhouse facility is available to boat crews; please see "Visiting Boats Welcome" page for contact details. 

Please note VHF Ch37/16 is not continually manned.

The club also maintains 2 visitor moorings, located adjacent to the west side of the harbour. (marked with white buoys) for short term visitors. These are free to use, although we do ask that visitors make a donation toward their upkeep. 

The use of these moorings is at your own risk - but they are fully maintained; please see "Visiting Boats Welcome" page for club contact details.

 Please note the boat club has no control over the harbour itself. for any visitors wishing to use harbour facilities visit Cromarty Harbour Trust website: http://www.cromartyharbour.org/

Cromarty Cinema [yes, we have one!] and small offices stand a little to the North of the Club Tower, next to Slaughterhouse Coffee at the top of the ferry slipway.

The Township of Cromarty is well worth a visit with beautiful historic buildings and a range of places to eat and drink.

New to boating ?

If you're unsure whether you'd like sailing or feel like trying again, why not take an opportunity to have a gentle sail with us? (Free!). Many of our experienced skippers would welcome an extra pair of hands on board.  Email Secretary@CromartyBoatClub.org if you'd like to try.

This is an ideal opportunity to build up experience and/or find out if sailing is indeed for you.

Have a look at the rest of the site to see what the club does; check out the "Location of Club" on the map page. You will often find members working on their boats [of all types] on a Saturday. Say hello and introduce yourself.

Cromarty Boat Club is committed to keeping sailing affordable to all with very low membership fees so why not join us?

Club facilities such as moorings, winter storage etc are available only to active members of the club.

Contact any of the committee to get a warm welcome.
