The Port of Inverness is operated as a Trust Port under the control of Inverness Harbour Trust which was constituted by an Act of Parliament in 1847.  It is one of Scotland’s most sheltered natural deep water harbours, lying seven miles south-west of Chanonry Point in the Inverness Firth.  The Port has a recorded history dating back to 1249 making it one of the oldest continuous businesses operating in the Highlands. 

It is situated in latitude 57° 29’N longitude 004° 14’W and as a result of its sheltered location, the Port can offer companies almost guaranteed access irrespective of the weather.
