Follow this trail around the Highlands' coastline to visit some of the best spots to see a huge variety of sea life in Scotland, including whales and dolphins.

These magnificent marine mammals are common residents and visitors of Scottish shores and catching a glimpse is an exhilarating experience. This trail guide will take you around the route by recommending the best sites for viewing, although marine wildlife can be seen all around the coast. It also gives advice on identifying what you have seen and useful contact numbers for you to report any sightings.
