Forres to Burghead

The Moray Coast Trail officially starts at Forres and follows the cycleway to reach the sea at Findhorn - this section could be avoided by taking a bus. The route then follows the coast along tree covered dunes to Roseisle forest, populated by red squirrels, before the stage ends at the old fishing village of Burghead.
