Situated on the North East Coast of Scotland, Lossiemouth is favoured by the mild Gulf Stream air, miles of excellent beaches and beautiful surrounding countryside.
The town began as a port at the mouth of the River Lossie to help the town of Elgin in trading. The port is now a busy town itself and a spectacular marina has been developed in the twin basined harbour.

Lossiemouth from the air Lossiemouth The town known affectionately as simply ‘Lossie’ offers something for everyone. There was once a railway between Lossiemouth and Elgin. The dunes in Lossie’s East Beach were made using old railway carriages to protect the seatown from heavy seas. Visitors can enjoy long walks, spectacular scenery and beautiful sandy beaches. The West Beach passing the landmark of Covesea Lighthouse is some 3 miles long. History records a hermit who inhabited a cave and would walk the headland with a torch to warn ships away from the dangerous rocks of the Covesea and Halliman Skerries. He later became known as St. Gerardine. The East Beach, characterised by its sand dunes which run parallel to the sea and the river, stretches even further. It is reached by a wooden pedestrian bridge over the river Lossie. The bridge was built originally to encourage day trippers on the old Moray Railway to visit the town in the summer months.
