In Pictures: The Beauty of the Moray Coast

Having been brought up on the Moray Coast, I could talk at length about its beauty.  For me it is a truly special place, brimming over with charming fishing villages, gorgeous views and stunning sunsets.  The picturesque village of Findhorn is where I spent many summers as a child: playing on the beach, learning to sail; filling plastic buckets with shells; jumping down dunes…  With its tear-drop bay full of boats in the summer, long stretch of beach and picture-perfect rows of houses, it is nestled deep in my heart.  One of my favourite family walks as a child was along the beach from Findhorn to Burghead, and between the two you’ll find Roseisle (backed by a pine wood run by the Forestry Commission – highly recommended).  Nearby Lossiemouth also remains a favourite of mine, particularly its wild East Beach.   

But why take my word for it?  Here are some of my favourite photos taken around the Findhorn – Lossiemouth stretch of coastline to show you why, to me, it is one of the country’s finest.

    Lovely photos. Great part of Scotland for dolphin-watching I believe.
