Moray (also known as Elginshire) is one of Scotland’s 32 counties, situated on the North Eastern coast of the country. It is a region famous for the resident population of dolphins, among the best places on the continent to see animals in the wild. Specialists assume that there are about 130 bottlenose dolphins in the area. You may also see seals, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and killer whales. Moray’s coastline offers a lot of great opportunities for wildlife watching. It is rich in animal and plant life, a declared support of waders and wildfowl. Other animals you can see are otters, ospreys and seabirds nesting on the cliffs. On the Southern coastline, you will be able to admire one of the biggest sand dunes landscapes in the United Kingdom. The rest of the county is covered with pine plantations, perfect for supporting wildlife. The badgers are very common near Inverness and so are the pine martins, although they were an endangered species in the past.
