A bird’s eye view of the Cromarty Firth painted by local artist Grant Boyd specifically for the Museum in 2006. The painting shows the landscape surrounding the Cromarty Firth from the Sutors at the entrance of the Firth to the Cromarty Bridge in the distance. Evidence of the oil industry that benefits from the great depth of the Cromarty Firth can be seen by the oil rigs along the Firth. They are often brought in to the area to be serviced and repaired. More information relating to the oil rigs and other industries which use the Cromarty Firth can be seen at Invergordon Naval Museum and Heritage Centre.
