Lossiemouth can be found on the Moray coast some five miles north of Elgin. The town developed due to Elgin's need for a port after the entrance to Loch Spynie became blocked by sand in the 1500's. It is known for it's 2 fabulous sandy beaches, Championship level Golf Course and as the birthplace of labour's first Prime Minister, Ramsay MacDonald.
Around LossiemouthThere are a number of nice walks from the cottage, along the beach of course, but also along the river and through the woods. Ospreys are frequently seen fishing near the mouth of the Lossie. Or perhaps a walk along the Esplanade to the harbour and marina, maybe stopping at one of the pubs or the Harbour tearooms for refreshments. A walk along the Esplanade probably wouldn't be complete without a locally made ice cream!
For evening entertainment, there is live music at The Steamboat Inn on a Friday night or checkout what's on at The Warehouse Theatre. If you have children with you, take them to explore the ruins of nearby Duffus castle or horseriding at Equus. On a wet day there's plenty to keep them entertained swimming or skating at The Moray Leisure Centre in Elgin or at the fantastic Playbarn at Llanbryde.
For the practical side of things, Lossiemouth has a small supermarket, a greengrocers, a couple of butchers and a bakery. Otherwise there are 24 hour Tesco's and Asda's just 6 miles away in Elgin. However, if you want a total break, you can eat out at a number of fine restaurants or pick up a takeaway!
