Explore Nairn & Beyond

Nairn is a great location from which to explore the North of Scotland and beyond. Whether it be a game of golf on the championship courses, a distillery tour, a visit to one of the many historic sites and castles or as a starting and finishing point for the NC500. The Moray Firth is one of the best land-based dolphin watching hot spots in the world and is home to over 130 bottlenose dolphins. They can often be spotted off the beach at Nairn or boat tours are available.
