Merkinch Local Nature Reserve
Situated in the heart of Inverness itself, this spot is an excellent place to start dolphin spotting. Simply look out across the water to the north and wait. The best time is on a rising tide, when the dolphins swim along the Beauly Firth further inland, following the fish. The nature reserve also offers many other wildlife viewing opportunities, including otters, common seals, roe deer, and a wealth of birdlife.
