Tugnet, Spey Bay, Fochabers, Moray, IV32 7PJ

    Whale and Dolphin Conservation has two wildlife centres in Scotland, the Scottish Dolphin Centre located at Spey Bay in Moray and the Dolphin and Seal Centre in North Kessock. Both are free to visit.

    The Moray Firth in Scotland is home to a population of around 130 bottlenose dolphins. It also plays host to an abundance of other wildlife including: seabirds, otters, ospreys, seals, harbour porpoises, basking sharks, minke whales and common dolphins.

    A visit to the WDC centres is a great day out and gives you the chance to meet the WDC team and find out how you can support their work to protect Scotland's whales and dolphins.

    The Scottish Dolphin Centre is located on the edge of a beautiful nature reserve. It features an exhibition about the Moray Firth, Dolphins and Local Wildlife. There are frequent sightings of dolphins, seals, otters, osprey and wildfowl. 

    The Dolphin and Seal Centre at North Kessock, near Inverness features spectacular views, making it a great place to see and hear dolphins.
