The North Highlands is a popular choice for wildlife spotting, with a mixture of dolphins, minke whales, grey and common seals often sighted from the beach. Roe deer, red deer, hedgehog, moles, shrews, voles, wood mice, fox, stoat, weasel and rabbit are all common, and if you’re very lucky, you might catch sight of the wildcat, which resides in woods and the hills.
