Moray Firth

The Moray Firth is a roughly triangular inlet of the North Sea, north and east of Inverness, like a broad, funnel. It is the largest firth in Scotland, considered to stretch from Caithness in the north to Fraserburgh in the east.

The Moray Firth washes the shores of 9 counties; Inverness-shire, then Ross-shire, Cromartyshire, Sutherland and Caithness on its north-western shore, and Nairnshire, Banffshire, Morayshire and Aberdeenshire on its southern shore. Of its 500 miles of coastline, much of it is cliff. The name of the firth is from the ancient province of Moray, from which today comes the county of Moray, on the southern shore of the firth.

The Beauly Firth is an inner sea-loch closer to Inverness, part of the Moray Firth or separated from it by the narrows at Inverness. (Read more)
