East Lossiemouth Beach

Lossiemouth was kind of the neighbouring village of Hopeman and I heard a lot of things about the amazing East Beach, so I definitely had to check it out.

It looked very promising but then the bridge to the beach was closed and the was no other possible way to access it. So I changed my plans and did a walk around Lossiemouth instead.

Lossiemouth is often called the “jewel of the Moray Forth”, surrounded by two stunning beaches, dunes and wonderful landscape. And a lovey town…

Originally the port belonged to Elgin and Lossiemouth became an important fishing town. There have been settlements in the area for around 1000 years, the current settlement developed over the last 250 years.

The Seatown was established at the end of the 17th century when the old port at Spynie became landlocked. A succession of storms had built up large shingle banks to block the outlet of Loch Spynie to the sea. (Wikipedia)
