Driving home along the A842 from Campbeltown this lunchtime I was just passing through Peninver when I spotted a small pod of Bottlenosed dolphins maybe a 100yds off from the beach.
There were between six and a dozen and they were doing the usual dolphin things: rolls, jumps and full leaps out of the water. They looked to be having lots of fun.
I lost sight of them as they rounded the point, heading north, and an hour and half later saw the same pod passing Carradale Bay. They weren't putting on quite such a good show this time but anyone out at Carradale Point would have had a splendid view of them.
