Quiet Spring day at Avoch beside the Moray Firth
Quiet Spring day at Avoch beside the Moray Firth
The sands, muds and gravels of Avoch Bay have little seawards slope, so the tide goes out far at low tide, and returns quickly. There are a number of gravel spits on which the seabirds preferentially stand before being forced off by rising water. A very peaceful place that has seldom windblown waves entering the bay.
