Aberdeen’s very first dolphin festival is set to make a splash tonight as a renowned wildlife cameraman gives a talk.
The much-anticipated DolphinFest celebrates the marine wildlife around Aberdeen and the north-east coast, especially the bottlenose dolphins seen from Torry Battery.
The four-day event will launch tonight with a talk by BBC wildlife cameraman and photographer Doug Allan at the Beach Ballroom.

Following tonight’s launch, the next three days of the festival will include a day focusing on science at Aberdeen University on Friday, a family fun day at Duthie Park on Saturday and a day of action at Torry Battery on Sunday.
Sadie Gorvett, RSPB Scotland Dolphinwatch community events officer, said the event has been “so much fun” to organise.
She added: “I hope the festival will inspire people who may not know much about the marine environment to get involved and enjoy it.”
