Dolphin spotting


This is probably the last post about Scotland for the time being.

Just one or two places not mentioned so far, this is Avoch harbour on the black isle.

and from here we travelled to Fortrose Cathedral and the local sticky bun shop.

From there it was down to Chanory Point which is a popular dolphin spotting area.

Here the seats and tables are engraved with dolphin motifs which I laughingly suggested would be the only dolphins that we would see.

although this plaque revealed a weirder story...

The mist kept rolling in and out, at times Fort George was visible on the other side of the estuary.

As we walked out to the point, I turned round to speak and spotted 2 dolphins diving under the waves just a few yards away! Frantic rummaging around for my camera...eventually I managed to get a shot as them swam out to see. The little blob is actually 2 adults and a juvenile dolphin swimming off. We have seen the dolphins in the past from Fort George but that time it required the binoculars.

Dolphins!! How exciting. I saw some once ages ago off the coast dancing about in the Atlantic. They really are magical creatures.
