Tourist Information - Countryside and Nature

Moray has a great deal to offer nature lovers, with its wide range of habitats playing host to many bird and animal species, including osprey, capercaillie and red squirrel.

The Moray Firth is also home to rare bottlenose dolphins, which can often be seen from the shore, while in the uplands those lucky enough might catch a glimpse of the majestic golden eagle.
