Default Dolphins watching at Rosemarkie- Fortrose

Hi all,
I have a daughter mad keen on dolphins, and was wondering about visiting
the above site on the Murray Firth over Easter.

Is anyone familiar with the site to know if you are likely to see the
dolphin colony around Eastertime this year? And are there any pitches better
than others for viewing from the van?

Cheers Andrew

It's a nice site, with splendid views out over the bay. We were there
in May 2003 and the dolphins were out then. The site has two areas the
first is bounded at the rear by a road with only a minimal fence, and
at the front by a public footpath with no fence, but is completely
open to the bay. If you want electrics they are only available on the
rear of the two rows. But the view from the front row is worth it.
The second area is acros the road and has the toilet block in and
being a little further in towards Rosemarkie has the road between it
and the bay.

150 miles away on the west coast, but Tobermory may be worth a visit.
Wildlife programme on tv the other day enthusing that the bay is amongst the
best in the world for dolphins, porpoise and whales. Attracted by plentiful
food where the Gulf Stream sweeps up the coast and meets colder waters.
