A short walk from the Moray Firth shoreline, the area is acknowledged as one of the best places in Europe for spotting Bottlenose dolphins. Outdoor activities include golf, cycling, fishing, walking and climbing. Walk to the Medieval Ormonde Castle with views back to the village and over the bay. There are scenic drives all along the coast with pretty villages in between, and sandy beaches at Fortrose and Rosemarkie, with cafe and children’s play area.
