The Sutors of Cromarty

(Sutors of Cromarty)

Two opposing headlands in Easter Ross, the Sutors of Cromarty guard the entrance to the Cromarty Firth, rising to 147m (486 feet) on the north and 140m (463 feet) on the south. Sutor is a Scots word for a shoemaker. Both are occupied by the remains of substantial military gun emplacements built early in the 20th century to protect the naval anchorage in the Firth, but abandoned in the 1950s.
