Findhorn is a historic village located in Moray that was once an important commercial and fishing port, featuring a thriving shipbuilding industry with trading links to Scandinavia and beyond.
Findhorn village is focused around the bay, with one of the major sailing and watersports centres along the coastline making its home there.
Situated in Findhorn Bay, the village of Findhorn has a magnificent beach, a delightful harbour and a small heritage centre.
