The Moray Firth

This photograph, taken by Tom Baker, shows an aerial view of the Moray Firth, the large firth on the north-west coast of Scotland which leads to Inverness and through into Loch Ness. Known as 'an Cuan Moireach' in Gaelic, it is roughly triangular in shape and is Scotland's largest firth. The major rivers running into the firth are the River Ness and Spey River. Cromarty Firth and Dornoch Firth also lead of it.

Moray Firth is one of Britain's most renowned locations for observing dolphins and whales. While Bottlenose Dolphin and Harbour Porpoise are most commonly seen, Minke Whale, Common Dolphin and even a Sperm Whale have been spotted on occasion.
