The campsite is located near Channory Point which is considered one of the best places in Europe to see bottlenose dolphins. There are dolphins visible in many parts of the seas surrounding Scotland but Channory Point on the Black Isle offers a much closer view of these magnificent creatures. This is one of the only places in Scotland where you can observe dolphins from such a short distance.
If you really want to see the Bottlenose Dolphins you must prepare because they are particularly visible on an incoming tide. Also coming in with the tidal current are salmon, which once the tide starts to come in can be extreme. Ask the campsite for tide details if you are planning a trip. The best time for viewing animals will be when the tide comes in or goes out. Sometimes animals go right past the campsite early in the morning and evening but it is only a 10 minute walk to Channory Point where you will have the best view.
Fortrose Bay Campsite is located between Avoch and Rosemarkie on the A832 on the southern coast of the Black Isle. There are many buildings of an ornate Victorian style in the area.
Nearby is the Fortrose Cathedral which was built in 1250 A.D. Only a fraction of the original building remains standing but even this is an impressive sight. The cathedral is constructed of red sandstone with a spire at one end. The Fortrose Cathderal stands within four walls, surrounded by mossy lawns. There is a large free parking area around the walls.
There is a very beautiful harbour and a peaceful, secluded beach that are hidden from most of the town and which are only reachable by narrow, twisting roads. There is a very active yacht club in the town as the harbour is largely given over to leisure pursuits these days.
Within easy reach of the park there is a food shop, a bar and pub, a restaurant, tennis courts, golf courses, sailing, tennis and horse riding.
