Yards from the gushing River Lossie, embraced by forested glens and only 12 miles from the mouth of the River Findhorn and the formidable North Sea, there is no end of opportunities for adventure lovers here. Perfectly suited to those looking to absorb the peace and quiet and make the most of the glorious landscapes all around, you won't have to venture far to feel a cool breeze running through your hair and breathe in the pure, clean air of this remote part of Scotland.
If you would like to visit the area's picture-perfect beaches, a trip to the Moray Coast is a must. 16 miles away, you will arrive at Lossiemouth, dubbed ‘the jewel of the Moray Firth'. Great for sailors and golf fans as well as nature lovers, the town flaunts two pristine sandy beaches backed by a ridge of dunes and overlooked by rolling countryside; a true haven. Regularly visited by passing whales and dolphins out at sea, the charming fishing village of Burghead (15 miles) is also worth your time; visit Burghead Visitor Centre to learn about local history from 400AD to the present day.
To stock up on supplies, Elgin and Forres are great places to dip in and out of. Only 11 miles away, Elgin sits happily within the world-famous whisky region of Scotland and is home to a number of distilleries, including Glen Moray, Gordon & MacPhail and Glen Elgin. A little closer is Forres (8 miles), known for its art scene and castle.
