Description

Covesea Village is the middle one of a row of five detached cottages on the clifftop near Lossiemouth, with sea and mountain views across the Moray Firth. The access from the main road is via a farm track and there is walking access directly to both the coastal path and a sandy beach. A charming traditional stone-built cottage, it has been sympathetically restored by the owners and refurbished in 2019. There is a lovely bright living room with a wood burner giving the whole house a cosy and warm feeling. Outside is an open garden where most years wild orchids grow, with a picnic table and a shed for bicycles.
Look out for the Moray Firth bottlenose dolphins and the occasional minke whale and basking shark. There are many opportunities for golf, distillery visits, bird-watching, on-road and off-road cycling, and kayaks or canoes can be carried to launch from the beach. Explore the caves, look for the footprints of reptiles left 250 million years ago and visit the lighthouse. Beyond Covesea, there is the former fishing town of Lossiemouth, its harbour now full of yachts, with shops, pubs, two beaches and a fisheries museum. Inland is Elgin with its ruined cathedral and a range of activities, shops, restaurants and pubs – and Scotland’s oldest independent museum. Inverness, the gateway to the Northwest Highlands and the start of the ’North Coast 500’ is less than an hour’s drive away, and the Cairngorms National Park is an hour’s drive. Beach 100 yards. Shops, pub and restaurant 3¾ miles.

About the local area

The beautiful county of Moray lies east of Inverness and Nairn and is well hidden from the main Scottish tourist route. The coast is fairly flat, characterised by large stretches of sand dunes backed by forests and wide bays. Further inland the landscape changes to agricultural, rising up across empty moorland, criss-crossed by rivers and glens towards the foothills of the Cairngorms.

Elgin, Moray's capital is an elegant town offering an array of historic features to view including the magnificent 13th Century cathedral. There is also a Biblical garden, museum with fossil collections and Drumin Castle, a 14th Century tower house.

Not surprisingly this area is a haven for hikers. A network of paths and quiet back roads link the coastal towns and villages making it easy to explore the mosaic of farmland, woodland and shore. Follow the Moray Coastal Trail from Forres and you will eventually reach historic Cullen. Along the way you will find information boards describing your journey.

This unspoilt county abounds with wildlife, such as ospreys, otters, crested tits, red squirrels, pine martens and bottlenose dolphins. Visit Culbin Forest which stands on one of the largest sand dune systems in Britain, and Culbin Bar the best example of a shingle spit.

Visitors to the region will also discover a string of ancient Highland communities all offering you a warm welcome and a variety of attractions. From Historic ruins and castles to dynamic eco-communities, from scenic coastal woodland walks to thrilling climbing, skiing and mountain biking. Whether you want to stroll along the riverbank or beach, or tackle something more adventurous, there are always plenty of options when it comes to getting active.

Moray offers a real taste of the true traditions of the Highlands that is sure to have you coming back again and again.
