Lossiemouth, often referred as ‘the jewel of the Moray Firth’, is a golf-oriented resort on the north west coast of Scotland.
Blessed with two sandy beaches, glorious dunes and beautiful countryside, the town is a great getaway place from the stresses of modern life. Visitors can enjoy the long pleasant walks along the beach and soak up the town’s tranquil atmosphere. The West beach passes the landmark of Covesea Lighthouse and is about 3 miles long while the East beach is predominantly characterised by its sand dunes that run parallel to the sea and river stretching even further. The town is great for sailing and boat rides for dolphin spotting or sea angling while watersports enthusiasts, particularly surfers, will enjoy the waves.
In the easternmost part of the older harbour grid of stone streets, Pitgaveny Street has the tiny Fisheries Museum, which includes some interesting scale models of fishing boats and a re-creation of the study of local-lad-made good James Ramsey MacDonald, Britain’s first Labour Prime Minister.
