Dolphin spotting

Chanonry Point is a spit of land extending over a mile south-east into the Moray Firth from Fortrose and Rosemarkie.

The Point is an ideal place to watch the famous Moray Firth dolphins, and they can often be seen at very close quarters at low tide as they fish and play in the turbulent waters off the point.

Alternatively, visit the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) wildlife centre, based at the mouth of the River Spey close to Fochabers.

Use the centre's binoculars and telescopes to try to spot some of the biggest bottlenose dolphins in the world.

Wednesday, April 8, sees the opening of a new harbour garden there while, on Saturday, April 12, there’s an Easter egg hunt from 11am-4pm and a guest visit from renowned wildlife photographer Charlie Phillips. Further details on 01343 820339.

Another idea is to take to the water and join a boat trip on which you can see all sorts of wonderful creatures.

Puffin Cruises sail daily, weather permitting, from Macduff harbour. Call 01261 832425 or visit Wildlife cruises also run from Gairloch. Call 0800 008 6833 (free) or go to
