STAY FOR A WEEK
Lossiemouth is a great place to base yourself to explore further afield. Share a dram at a local distillery. Clamber through old ruined castles, or take tea in the garden of a stately home.
From Lossie, you can get a morning’s skiing at the Lecht or Cairngorm and be back home for an afternoon surf before tucking into a fresh seafood dinner and a locally brewed beer.
We have lots of ideas to help you fill a week, most of these are within a 30 minute drive from Lossiemouth.
