Chanonry Point Beach
Chanonry Point Beach is renowned for being one of the best spots in the UK to watch dolphins, especially the famous Moray Firth dolphins. This narrow peninsula offers spectacular views across the Moray Firth, making it a prime location for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers. The beach itself is a mix of shingle and sand, providing a picturesque setting against the backdrop of Fort George on the opposite shore. Besides dolphin watching, the area is popular for its tranquil atmosphere, ideal for leisurely strolls and picnics.
