The Moray Firth

The Moray Firth is the largest and one of the most diverse of Scotland's firths. Situated in the north-east of Scotland, its coastline stretches for over 800kms from Duncansby Head in the north to Fraserburgh in the east, and is home to over 250,000 people and a wealth of environmentally significant habitats and species.  There are over a hundred natural heritage designated sites around the firth, including the Moray Firth Special Area of Conservation for the bottlenose dolphins and subtidal sandbanks.  Coastal zone management helps ensure these important habitats and species can successfully co-exist alongside wide ranging human activity and industry.
