Aerial view of the Scottish Dolphin Centre
The Scottish Dolphin Centre lies half way between Inverness and Aberdeen. Turn off the A96 onto the B9104, between Mosstodloch and Fochabers, following the brown tourism sign for the Scottish Dolphin Centre. Follow the road until the end and take the right hand fork to the centre car park.


Please consider donating £2 to park your car at the Centre. Your money will contribute directly to the maintenance of the car park, the running of the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre and WDC’s work to protect dolphins in Scotland. Unfortunately there is not space at the Centre to park cars, motorhomes or trailers overnight.
