Young Farmers Promotion at Cromarty Firth

Today, our focus was on places in N.E. Scotland associated with Clan Ross. Our endeavours were partly successful in that whilst we did visit locations such as Tain (Easter Ross), Pitcalnie (Ross-Shire) and Kildary (Easter Ross) we were unable to view Balnagown Castle, ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan Ross, as ownership has changed and the property is very secluded. However, weather conditions were, on balance, favourable and we were fortunate to view a wide range of sites plus a wedding and crew of a sea-going skiff undergoing training.

Dolphins at Chanonry Point, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on a popular Dolphin watching spot called Chanonry Point. This is a scenic location  on the east coast of Scotland, a little north of Inverness at tip of a finger of land which juts into the Moray Firth where a lighthouse is sited. Access is via the village of Fortrose and then a road which passes  through Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Course. Chanonry Points links with Rosemarkie Bay. The Dolphins here are of the Bottlenose variety.
