Killer Whales Metres from Scrabster Harbour


C. Karen Munro

Over recent years, cetacean sightings around the Caithness coat has been markedly low. Not so this summer.

Less than a week after she photographed a pod of killer whales in Thurso Bay, Karen Munro of Caithness Sea Watching caught another scene.

This time the pod came almost directly into Scrabster harbour, in full view of tourists and locals. The water was said to be boiling with the whales and sea-birds and, presumably, a shoal of fish being driven by the whales.

Certainly a more peaceful scene than one Karen Munro of Caithness Sea Watching previously snapped. A pod of killer whales can be seen sauntering past Scrabster harbour.
