Mallaig Harbour, Scotland

Mallaig Harbour, Scotland.

This evening, I am focusing on the vibrant fishing village and port of Mallaig in the Western Highlands of Scotland.

As a tour guide I encounter a stop at Mallaig as a transit point between Fort William and Isle of Skye (or vice versa). At Mallaig it is possible to connect with a ferry which transfers people and vehicles to/from Armadale, Isle of Skye at regular intervals entailing a journey time of about 25 minutes. The short ferry trip is quite scenic and affords wonderful views of the Knoydart Penisula. Occasionally, it is possible to spot wildlife such as dolphins  escorting the ferry.

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.

Owl at Dunrobin Castle, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Inverness and drove north on the A9 to the Black Isle (not an island). First we called in at the viewpoint of Chanonry Point where we spotted Bottle-Nosed Dolphins hunting for fish. Next to the attractive village of Cromarty at the northern tip of the ‘isle’. We briefly explored the pleasant village and availed of a refreshment stop.
