On the coast of Scotland's Moray coast the area has stunning beaches and countryside all within walking distance. The village sits on a peninsula, with Findhorn Bay to the west and the Moray Firth to the north, and is the centre for every water based activity imaginable, as well as a gorgeous 4 mile long sandy beach.
It's a renowned place to see wildlife. Seals are permanent residents at the mouth of the Findhorn Bay, and the celebrated Moray Firth dolphins can be often be seen leaping in the nearby waters.
