The Moray Firth is home to around 900 harbour seals. Grey seals can also be spotted in the summer. Harbour seals like to haul themselves ashore and bask in the sun. The best places to spot them in Nairn, are East Beach at Culbin Forest and Whiteness Beach (the Secret Beach). Of course, you can also spot them on boat trips. You can also sail or kayak out to the Old Bar where you will often find large groups of seals lolling around on the sand.
