Links with: Dava Way, Speyside Way
This part of Scotland has an incredible coastline and you will be rewarded with views over the Moray Firth no matter which part of the route you are walking along. Despite giving a sense of remoteness due to the ruggedness of the coast, pleasant villages and towns are never far away on this 50 mile trail.
Superb beaches, striking cliffs and forests form your route but it’s not just the landscape that is so pleasing. You will hopefully be treated to a show by the bottlenose dolphins who reside here or an aerial display from the abundant birdlife.
The only diversions you may have to make are at high tide at Lossiemouth and Cullen beaches and Lossiemouth and Cullen and between Lossie and Kingston if the military firing range there is in use. It’s estimated that the trail can be completed in 23 hours, broken down into sections between coastal communities.
The Moray Coast Trail links with the Dava Way at Forres at the western start point and with the Speyside Way at Buckie towards the eastern end. All three trails together form the 95 mile Moray Way.
