Elgin, Lossiemouth and Buckie


Elgin, Lossiemouth and Buckie

The city of Elgin, with its riverside location and ruined cathedral, is the capital of Moray. It makes an ideal base to explore an area rich in history, situated between the hills and distilleries to the south and the fine coastline, rich in sandy beaches, to the north.

Along the coast the main towns are Lossiemouth and Buckie, both forming fishing centres. Between the two is the majestic sweep of Spey Bay, from which dolphins are frequently sighted. Further east are smaller fishing villages; Cullen being the picturesque highlight amongst them.
