The map reference for this place is NH 7750 6695 Sheet 21, just off B9163 road.

The Cromarty Firth is noted as a deep-water haven with a deep (50m) narrow inlet channel which is about a mile wide (1.6Km). On either side of the channel are two headlands, the higher one is 463 feet (140m) in height. These were known as East and West Sutors, until the Admiralty re-named them North and South. Cromarty, the town, lies at the mouth of the Firth, and just below the South Sutor. Each Sutor had heavy gun-emplacements and was operational in WW1 and WW2. They were manned by Norwegians during WW2. See North and South Sutors (below) for details.
