A beautiful area
Located an hour's drive north of Inverness, along the east coast of the Scottish Highlands, Loch Fleet is actually an arm of the North Sea, separated from the main body of water by a narrow peninsula. In addition, the bottom of the Loch shore-side is bordered by the A9 road from Inverness and goes north, past the hill of The Mound. The result is a lagoon behind the road, where the special water conditions and salt water have allowed some rare bird species to flourish. It's a beautiful area which deserves a quick stop if you're on the way to the north of Scotland.
