Full Description

Located on rock by the high tide line is a metal column c.0.75m high, cemented into the natural rock. This is an anchor point for the boom which extended across the entrance of the Cromarty Firth. It may be the First World War anchor point for the boom, as it lies some c.60m from the First World War Searchlights for the 4-inch QF Battery (see MHG59147). Recorded as part of HS and RCAHMS' World War One Audit Project. <1> <2>
