The Free Dolphin Shuttle
See the amazing Moray Firth Dolphins the Easy Way!
Chanonry Point is the most popular land-based spot in Scotland for viewing bottle-nosed dolphins with an estimated 100,000 visitors per year drawn by the often spectacular displays. Its popularity is such that at peak season the number of people visiting by car far exceeds the capacity of the small car park. For the past 2 years traffic chaos has resulted in public safety concerns with the single tracked access road often blocked, residents unable to access their homes and golfers unable to access part of the popular Fortrose golf course. To relieve congestion Highland Council is introducing car parking charges for the peak summer period. To offer an alternative to car use the Community Council has organised a bus service between Rosemarkie, Fortrose and Chanonry Point. For those without cars it is now possible to visit Chanonry Point by public transport using the Stagecoach 26A/B/C service from Inverness or Cromarty and connecting to the Dolphin Shuttle in either village.
