Fancy a Highland adventure that's full of wonderful surprises? Then try a Moray Firth cottage holiday.

Did you know this huge inlet of North Sea is home to a school of bottlenose dolphins and is one of Europe's best places to watch them frolicking in the ocean? And if that's not enough, further out to sea you'll find harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins and migrating whales. Wildlife also abounds on land, with otters, badgers, deer and all sorts of birds. Don't miss Culbin Forest and the RSPB nature reserve at Culbin Sands, where miles of forest-capped dunes roll out to never-ending swathes of golden sands.

Indeed, the coast of the Moray Firth is awash with unspoilt beaches (look out for Burghead, Hopeman and Lossiemouth), punctuated by pretty fishing villages and many sites of historic interest, from Iron Age remains to intriguing Pictish stones. Nairn is an attractive seaside resort renowned for sun-drenched days, while the town of Forres is famous for its floral displays and associations with Macbeth.

Distinctive trails worth following include the Malt Whisky Trail, the impressive Castle Trail and the Moray Firth Trail - the latter part of the North Sea Trail and offering endless walks off-the-beaten track, with links to the Great Glen Way and Speyside Way.

The Moray Firth is also a good place to pack your irons and features a mind-boggling collection of golf courses - Spey Bay, Elgin, Hopeman and Forres, to name a few.

Add a temperate climate, superb diving and the regional delicacy of Cullen Skink and your Moray Firth cottage holiday awaits!
