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.
