Findhorn Beach

Close to the historic village of Findhorn, this is one of the most popular beaches on the Moray coast. It is a good place to see seals hauled out at low tide on the sandbank at the mouth of the River Findhorn. The top of the beach is shingle, so at high tide there is little sand exposed.

At the back of the beach near its western end there is an impressive a line of large concrete tank-traps and the occasional pillbox erected at the start of World War II when it was thought that the Germans might invade the country. Further east, where the beach has been eroded, the seaweed covered pillboxes sit tilted an odd angles some 30 metres from the shore.

Well worth a visit, and close to the beach, is the Findhorn Heritage Centre. The village itself has a couple of good pubs, a restaurant and a café.
