The shingle beach in front of the lighthouse at Channonry Point on the Black Isle just North of Inverness is easily the best place to see the Moray Firth dolphins, which come in close to the beach when feeding. Best on a rising tide, a couple of hours after low tide.

We went with Dolphin Watch as part of our Aigas Field Centre Wildlife Week. A very good two hour trip to view Dolphins which also took in seabird nesting cliffs. The Dolphins performed and the seabirds were there in their thousands. Because Dolphin Watch use a fast boat (and loan Waterproof outer protection!) they can cover the ground (water!) quickly...

Took a random trip north to the Black Isle and saw one of the most amazing sites in the British Isles. It was very cold and windy but seeing Dolphins in their natural habitat makes well worth the effort.

Easy to find at end of Northbound Inverness Bridge. Free admission (but please leave a donation guys) with plenty of free binoculars, wall charts, video feeds + underwater microphones. Not guaranteed to see dolphins, but should do during summer months especially. The resident volunteer full of knowledge and anecdotes and more than eager to answer your questions. If nothing else...

This was brilliant. We saw Dolphins in the sea and the members of staff could not be more helpful. We visited the ice house on the location which was a well worth tour. Spent hours there watching dolphins, activities/shop and just sitting on the beach enjoying the gorgeous setting.

Arrived on a windy and cold May day to be met with "There were dolphins earlier but we don't know where they are now". We then spent a cold fifteen minutes trying to find some sign of them and did see some but they were not particularly visible as they were not jumping and could only be seen through the... More
