Occupying a corner site on the junction of Commerce Street and King Street the club premises are of traditional sandstone and slate and modern block construction. An impressive two storey building, the club Standard flies proudly from the flagstaff on the south east corner.

The main entrance on Commerce Street is split level, down to the ground floor and the spacious main bar with pool table, darts, and fruit machines, then on to the quiet lounge.
Upstairs is the main function hall with a bar and lounge area and adjacent catering facilities. The upstairs lounge offers spectacular views across the Moray Firth to the mountains of Sutherland and beyond.

With the approval of the committee members may, for a nominal fee hire the club facilities for private functions such as receptions, birthday and anniversary parties.

» St Gerardine School
St Gerardine School    St Gerardine School

St Gerardine School occupies a prominent position at the top of the hill which leads from Seatown to Branderburgh. Its catchment area, to the east of Elgin Rd and St Gerardine's Rd, is largely from the older part of the town of Lossiemouth.
Our roll remains reasonably stable since the pupils from the very large RAF presence within Lossiemouth tend to enrol at the school adjacent to RAF Lossiemouth. Currently our roll stands at 233 pupils in P1 - P7, with 44 Nursery pupils.

The school prides itself in its open, friendly ethos. Parents are encouraged to take part in the school life and many lend a hand as "helpers" in the classes.There are also a very active PTA and School Board. Pupils move from St Gerardine to the Lossiemouth High School. There are good relationships between the High School and St Gerardine both at staff level and at management.

Visits by a member of the Senior Management team, Guidance staff, and a Link Topic, organised jointly by the Home Economics and Technology Departments, ensure a very comfortable transition for our P7 pupils. Parents are invited to attend meetings at the High School, providing the opportunity to meet with senior members of staff and guidance team.

St. James Church is now in its third building. Lossiemouth Secession Church was opened in what is now the drill hall on Church Street in 1841. Due to the uniting of the Secessionist and Relief churches in 1847 this then became the United Presbyterian Church.

As Lossiemouth grew in the latter half of the 19th century with the founding of Branderburgh, it was decided to move the church closer to the centre of population. In 1881 the new church on James Square was completed and the congregation moved up the hill.

In 1900, due to more reunifications at a national level, the church became St. James United Free Church and finally St. James Church of Scotland in 1929. In 1966 structural problems were revealed in the church and it was decided to move once again, this time to the old High U. F. Church on Prospect Terrace which was vacant by that time having united with St. Gerardine's.

During its distinguished history the church has been served by ten ministers.
