Findhorn and the Moray Firth

Findhorn Village

Once a busy fishing port, Findhorn village is now an ideal holiday location with miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, sailing and water sports in the sheltered horseshoe bay, and an ever changing vista over the Bay and nature reserve. See the osprey and seals fishing in the Bay, go on a Moray Firth dolphin watching trip, or just enjoy a good walk along the North shore.

The village has two pubs, the Kimberley and the Crown and Anchor, the Bakehouse Café (artisan bakery),  and a well stocked village shop and Post Office. The Captain's Table Café is at Findhorn Marina where a range of watersports, RYA training and chandlery are available. The Royal Findhorn Yacht Club with its Piers Cafe is next door to the old salmon fisheries.

The world renowned Findhorn Foundation and Eco Village (including the Universal Hall venue, Moray Arts Centre, Phoenix Shop and Blue Angel Café) is less than a mile distant.

Attractions in the area include sites of historic interest such as Cawdor Castle, Fort George and the battlefield at Culloden; distilleries in Forres and on Speyside; and some exceptionally fine links golf courses at nearby Nairn.

Moray Firth

The Moray Firth enjoys a favourable microclimate with more sunshine and less rain than the UK average. 

It can be windy, providing a challenge for both golfers and sailors – but not a problem for the osprey or dolphins.
