The Harbour, Cromarty - postcard

Year is purely a guess, and no doubt a ship expert will correct me ;)
Picture added on 14 April 2008
The ship in the photograph looks very similar to one of the Dryad class ships, a class of four Torpedo Gunships, HMS Dryad (later Hamadryad), Halycon, Harrier and Hussar. They were launched in 1893. The photo looks to have been taken after conversion in 1914 for World War I use as minesweepers, so your suggested date, Colin, might not be too far out.
