Great local spot on the Black Isle. Dolphins at Chanonry Point can be seen at anytime (and not at all!) but the best time to see them is usually on a rising tide. From around 1 hour after low tide, the tide turns and dolphins start to chase fish in.

“Ness Islands are a small group of islands in the middle of the River Ness connected by Victorian Footbridges. They are perfect for an evening sroll or afternooon walk and are only a short walk from the city centre. Paths are suitable for all abilities. The walk takes about 1 hour and is approx 3 miles but can be shortened. It is an ideal loop for a leisurely 5k. It takes you past Whin Park, Inverness Ice Centre & Botanic Gardens and Inverness Cathedral. Enjoy a whole day out without using the car.”
“A great sedate trip down the Great Glen canal out onto Loch Ness to see Nessie. With cafe on board and options to visit Urquahart Castle. They give you lots of information on Scottish History ”
