We'll be arriving for one night on Aug. 8th as part of a CIE bus tour. We'll be staying at the Newton Hotel. I'm wondering where we'd have to walk to see rock pools at low tide (I think it was mentioned in a guidebook) and if it's worth the effort to do so? About how far of a walk would it be from our hotel to the East Beach? Does the West Beach closest to us have just as good of views, especially at sunset? What are the chances of seeing the Moray Firth dolphins or Northern Lights when we're there? Thanks for your help.
