Despite visiting in February the sun was out and the rain had stopped. Visited with my girlfriend after checking tidal times to maximise the chance of seeing dolphins.

Gorgeous spot and was lucky to catch a pod of dolphins on one of the 5 visits. Recommend you visit just after the low tide when current bringing fish in.

Travelling around the black isle we visited Chanonry Point twice and were lucky enough to see dolphins on both occasions - well worth a visit.

As we were staying at Culloden we make a trip here in the hope of seeing dolphins. We were not disappointed and it was well worth the drive and braving the extremely cold wind. A lovely spot for nature lovers.
