    Cromarty Firth Port Authority announce............

    CFPA announce all but three of the expected cruise ship visits to Invergordon this season are cancelled.

    This season was due to be a record with an expected number in excess of 100 ships visiting the harbour.

    What a shame. Invergorden is charming.

            Looks like the lack of visits have hit a coach company that serves the port.

              Yes, he was interviewed on local telly.

              Not just D&E though. Although it was a significant part of their business they were not the only coach company to serve the cruise ships in Invergordon. When I stayed in Tain I knew if a ship was due in (and how big) by the amount of coaches that passed me as I headed to Inverness for work. As we are all probably aware the big ships can have as many as 15 - 20 coaches attending.

              Coach companies served the ships from as far away as Eligin, Banff & Isle of Skye.
