Chanonry Point, Fortrose
Categories: Geologic Formations, Nature & Parks, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
A good place for observing bottlenose dolphins, Chanonry Point serves as one of Scotland's major draws for ardent nature lovers. A narrow spit of land extending into a triangular inlet, this popular vantage point offers good photo opportunities throughout the year, though dolphin sightings increase during the warmer months. You can look for whales and dolphins any time of day, but the best light for serious photography happens in the late afternoon, when you can frame your shots away from the sun. Parking is limited, so consider walking here from the nearby town of Fortrose. Take a look at our Fortrose holiday planner to schedule your visit to Chanonry Point and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. We had to wait very long to the dolphins, but it paid off and we were enchanted. I would like to highlight Shuttle also the Chanronry Point. As we were with the bus in Fortrose, we were friendly, open-minded and transported safely to the vantage point and back into the village. Sparks is an exceedingly friendly and helpful guy. Since there are no toilets on the viewpoint of, he has brought us, without big fuss, to the public toilet in the village, waiting for us, and moved back in again. Who know him, please greet by Bianca from Germany. ;)show original
