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.
