“Stunning views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

A beautiful, breathtaking place. We didn't see any dolphins initially, but as we slowly began walking back to the car park, a large container-style boat was travelling in shore and we could see the dolphins racing alongside it, jumping out of the water at the front of it.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

A nice point of view on the Mory firth : you can have the chance to observe some "bottle nose" dolphins, or some seals. A special light all day long: but go as well on the other side, and visit Fort Georges...

“One of the best sites in uk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Where else in the UK can you stand on the shore and se pods of Dolphins swim, jump and generally enjoy themselves within 50 feet of the shore.
The problem with this view point is the small car park but it is well worth the visit.
Beware of low flying goofballs as the approach road crosses the golf course!

The view and the anticipation of the dolphins arriving. Just so amazing to see them in the wild here in Scotland.
