Stories in development

World of Birds: Why Torry Battery is a hotspot for birders and the unique experience on our doorstep.

Memories, History and Heritage: Sharing the story of Torry Battery and its change of use since the 1860’s through interviews with locals and historians that share their memories of this area.

Dolphin Watching: We delve in to the story of the bottlenose dolphins that visit Torry Battery daily and share how awareness of this wildlife spectacle has been built thanks to local RSPB Dolphinwatch

The Salmon Journey: The Salmon are synonymous with why the dolphins feed at the entrance to Aberdeen Harbour and are iconic with the River Dee. With Marine Scotland we explore the salmon journey from sea to river and its ties to our local heritage

Coastal Rocks: We share the story of the Torry headland and waterways through its geological imprint. Did you know that the River Dee once flowed in to Nigg Bay?
