Lossiemouth beaches

Moray | Lossiemouth | Beaches | ★★★

[Lossiemouth from the East Beach]

The sizeable former fishing port of Lossiemouth stands on a minor low headland jutting into the Moray Firth. Harbour aside, the town itself is a little disappointing - nearby Elgin appears to have sucked some of the life out of it - but its best features are on either side: two magnificent and sandy beaches, each stretching for miles along the coast. The East Beach features extensive dunes sandwiched between river and sea. There's a rickety-looking footbridge across the River Lossie to reach it. West Beach is equally beautiful though very small at low tide - it's also the start of an excellent walk to Hopeman via the Moray Coast Trail.
