Well worth a visit to Merkinch Nature reserve, if you are patient and quiet you may spot Pierre the otter (one of a family of otters resident here).  There are lovely carved seats to rest on, a path to Carnac Point and a memorial to the Kessock Ferry disaster in 1894 when the Kessock ferry got into trouble during a storm, three crew members drowned as did three coastguards who were trying to rescue the crew.merkinch local nature reserve, great spot for dolphin and otter watching
