Nigg Bay is an important area of mudflat, saltmarsh and wet grassland on the Cromarty Firth. It is one of the major stopover points for migrating birds travelling between their breeding and wintering grounds.


Visit the viewing hide between October and March and you are likely to see countless wading birds and waterfowl. In spring look out for the Lapwings tumbling display flights as they prepare to breed. In the summer months Ospreys can be seen hunting in the bay.
