Sandy Coast| Moray Firth

Moray Firth (Image: Dolphins  c/o Charlie Phillips)

The Moray Firth in Scotland is one of the best places in the country to see the ocean's most playful creature - the dolphin.

But you don't have to be behind glass at the local Dolphin and Seal Centre near Inverness to see them - just take a trip to Chanonry Point.

Orford Ness

  • Orford Ness Nature Reserve offers a wide range of habitats here including saltmarsh, mudflats, lagoons, and grazing marsh.

"We're in for a treat at the coast as we explore three places where you're virtually guaranteed a brilliant spring-time wildlife watching experience.

"We're spoilt for choice when it comes to great coastal locations. So there are no excuses - get out and see wildlife for yourself."
