Cromarty Rose
Cromarty Rose - Westward Ho

Each image links to a larger copy which opens in a new window/tab


This page is devoted to images of the ferry Cromarty Rose, which operated across the mouth of Cromarty Firth between Cromarty and Nigg. Cromarty Rose was built in 1987 in Ardrossan for Seaboard Marine (Nigg) Ltd who operated the Cromarty-Nigg service until 2001. After a tendering process, the contract passed to the Cromarty Ferry Company, who purchased the Cromarty Rose from her previous owners. The ferry runs every half hour between the end of May to the end of October, and carries 50 passengers and 2 cars. Evening cruises are run on Wednesdays and Fridays in July and August.

In 2010, the Cromarty Ferry Company replaced the Cromarty Rose with a new ferry. Cromarty Rose was sold to Martin Woolls at Weston-super-Mare on the Bristol Channel and renamed Westwood Ho after the P&A Campbell vessels of the same name (Martin having previously worked for the company on MV Balmoral). In 2012 Westward Ho runs services to the island of Flatholm from Knightstone Harbour at Weston, along with the 1938 motor vessel Bristol Queen (ex-Leven of the Caledonian SP Co).
