Date Added: 01 January 2003 Contributor: Andrew Bathie Year: 1890 Picture No: 259
Sadly this picture is badly faded. The sailing ship on the right appears on later photographs of the harbour so must have been a familiar sight for some years. The date is derived from the caption on the bottom but I suspect it may be later as it would appear that part of the fleet is captured in the background.

Sailing ship on right is Bonnie Lass. My Great Grandfathers vessel. Comment left on 23 March 2004 by John MacLean
If this is 1890, my 3rd great grandfather William may have been Cromarty harbourmaster at the time. Very surprised to find this. I may pretend that's him in the picture. Comment left on 21 October 2020 by John W Mackay
